AMIS vehicle hijacked + helicopter crew taken hostage and released

From Soldier of Africa: Nightime Observation in Darfur Dec 10 2006:
Tonight an AMIS vehicle was hijacked close to our house and the night has seen a moderate volume of gunfire. It has prompted us to rehearse our emergency plan and we are constantly observing. All fire has come from the East, South-East and North East. Unconfirmed reports has it that Al Junaynah, 304km to the West, is under threat of attack. An AMIS helicopter crew who were taken hostage yesterday were also released earlier this afternoon. Things are definitely escalating ... the question is, when and where will it peak and how bad will it be.
Best of luck.
