Darfur update

KHARTOUM, March 5 (Xinhua) -- The Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF)have found the body of a French soldier who had been reportedly missing following a clash with Sudanese troops in West Darfur on Monday, the official SUNA news agency reported on Wednesday.

The soldier was an U.N.A.M.I.D. peace keeper.
This is the first fatal casualty suffered by the EU force since it started deploying in late January on a UN-backed mission to protect refugees and civilians in conflict-torn eastern Chad.
