Gambari replaces Adada as head of UNAMID

Nigerian diplomat Ibrahim Gambari is to become the head of the UN-African Union peacekeeping force in the conflict-hit Darfur region, the UN has announced.

Mr Gambari is a former Nigerian foreign minister who is currently serving as UN special envoy to Burma.

He will take up his post on 1 January 2010, a spokeswoman for UN chief Ban Ki-moon said.

Mr Gambari replaces Congolese diplomat Rodolphe Adada, who stepped down earlier this year.
