Khartoum - Armed men abducted a civilian peacekeeper in Sudan's Darfur region on Thursday, hours after envoys from the UN Security Council arrived in the region, his force said.

"Today, in the evening, armed men entered the residence of four civilian staff members in downtown El Fasher (the capital of North Darfur). 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 Kemal Saiki, spokesperson for the joint UN/AU Unamid force.

Saiki said the missing man was not Sudanese but would not release any other personal details.
