Sudan – Attack against a UNAMID convoy (October 18, 2012)

France strongly condemns the attack against a UNAMID patrol on October 17, which killed a South African soldier and injured three others in Darfur.

We extend our condolences to the South African authorities and express our solidarity with the families of the victims. France calls on the Sudanese government to investigate as swiftly as possible this attack on a peacekeeping operation and to bring those responsible to justice.

France reaffirms its full support for UNAMID’s action as well as for the states that contribute, through their participation, to the consolidation of peace in Darfur.
