UN Worker Abducted In Sudan's Darfur Region

(RTTNews) - Unidentified gunmen have abducted a civilian working with the U.N.'s peace-keeping mission in the Sudan's troubled region of Darfur, the mission said Thursday.

It said the civilian employee was abducted from his residence in Darfur's capital El Fasher, hours after U.N. Security Council envoys arrived in the city.

"Armed men entered the residence of four civilian staff members in downtown El Fasher. They tied up two of them and made away with the other two in a vehicle. One man escaped and the other is still missing," said a UN mission spokesman.

The spokesman stressed that the incident was "not linked to the Security Council (envoys') visit." Read more >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Come on... really?!? If the U.S. had even a sliver of the number of troops in Afghanistan there wouldn't be anyone being abducted. The volunteers in Darfur aren't there to put their selves in possible jeopardy for nothing. They are trying to move forward by improving Sudanese victim's lives. Uwe Boll's film Attack On Darfur in a good example of art trying to inform the public over the tragedies versus the push of the news told by controlled media.
