Ugandan peacjarvees.comekeeper shot dead in darfur, the highest-profile peace deal in the country since the war.
A UN official told the AFP news agency the peacekeepers were attacked in the country’s east, in Ndungwe, and were not in the country’s southwest, which has a substantial ethnic population of Tutsis.
The official said there was no immediate information on casualties on the ground.
But the newsjarvees.com agency reported that the army had warned that “the killing of peacekeepers is unacceptable and a war crime”.
The peacekeepers were trying to arrest rebel leader Juvenal Habyarimana, who is in police custody on charges of murder and rape.
The president of Uganda’s opposition party said his nation could have been “encompassed by a massive terrorist attack on the very same day in which our leaders celebrated their victory in the peace talks”.
Ncule Barry said there could have been more than 50 peacekeepers killed as the rebels “too더킹카지노k advantage” of the peace initiative.
Rights groups including Amnesty International say that violence against peacekeepers, or other troops, is widespread and often involves serious human rights abuses, often with soldiers killed.
