Darfur peacekeeper kills colleagues

A peacekeeper with the international mission in Sudan's troubled Darfur region has shot dead four colleagues, the mission spokeswoman said on Friday.

"I confirm that four of the UNAMID peacekeepers were killed and one of them was injured due to gunshots fired by one of the peacekeepers,'' Aicha Elbasri told AFP.

More details to come.
