Armed men rob peacekeepers

From Times Wire Reports

Dozens of men on horseback armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades ambushed Nigerian peacekeepers serving with the U.N.-African Union force in Darfur.

No casualties were reported, but the attackers stole rifles, ammunition, telephones and cash.

The U.N. peacekeeping chief warned last week of an alarming increase in violence.
