A UNAMID patrol was ambushed today by an unidentified armed group near Anka, North Darfur, approximately 55 kilometers north of Kutum.

The perpetrators, who greatly outnumbered UNAMID’s peacekeepers, seized one machine gun, four rifles and rounds of ammunition. One peacekeeper was injured in the incident.

UNAMID condemns such attacks on its personnel. The Mission is working closely with the relevant Sudanese authorities to investigate the incident.
