UN unable to identify attackers in South Sudan copter downing

A picture from the United Nations Mission in Sudan shows Sudan People's Liberation Army Major General Peter Gadet (L) addressing his troops in Abyei on July 2, 2008A UN inquiry has concluded that a Russian helicopter was probably hit by anti-aircraft fire when it crashed in South Sudan last year, but could not determine who was responsible for the attack, the UN spokesman said Friday. Three Russian crew members were killed and a fourth injured in the downing on August 26 of the Mi-8 helicopter flying for the UN mission in South Sudan. The board of inquiry concluded that “there is a high probability that the helicopter was hit by anti-aircraft fire which caused mechanical failure and eventually leading to the crash,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. In September, the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) had indicated that a rebel leader, Peter Gadet, had a hand in the attack.
