Two UNAMID’s peacekeepers kidnapped in Sudan

Two members of the joint UN/African Union (Unamid) peacekeeping force have been kidnapped in Sudan’s western Darfur region, officials say.

A Unamid spokesman said the pair – a man and a woman – were abducted in the western town of Zalingei.

The victim’s nationalities have not been made public.

It comes two days after the UN’s military commander in the region said the six-year war there between the government and rebels was over.

According to UNAMID’s speaker, they were both civilians.
