A peacekeeper was shot dead Friday in an attack on an African Union-UN base in Darfur, the mission said, two days after the government announced it regained control of the area from rebels.

"In the early morning hours of 19 April, one peacekeeper of the African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) was shot dead and two others injured in an attack by unidentified assailants on the mission's team site near Muhagiriya," the mission's spokeswoman Aicha Elbasri said in a statement.
