Three peacekeepers have been killed in Sudan’s Darfur region, officials say.

The peacekeepers, from Rwanda, came under attack in West Darfur, an official with the joint UN-African Union force told Reuters news agency.

They were guarding a new base under construction in an area where there have been attacks in the past.
