Darfur rebels attack AU peacekeepers, one killed, 10 wounded
One Senegalese soldier of the AU peacekeeping mission was killed and 10 others were wounded in an ambush Friday by armed Sudanese rebels in Darfur.
This is the second ambush against the AU peacekeeping forces by armed Sudanese rebels since Nov. 29, 2005, when four Senegalese soldiers were wounded.
Surely, the time has come for AU peacekeepers in Darfur to be issued Chaper 7 mandate to protect themselves and innocent civilians from the Sudanese army and rebel groups who use the lives of millions of women and children as pawns in their monstrous killing games. So far, more than 400,000 Darfuris have perished while 3 years of anarchy still reins, leaving the boys with their toys feeling free to murder and maim without fear of arrest.
