CAIRO — The international peacekeeping force in Sudan's Darfur region says its forces were blocked by the military from reaching the destination of an alleged attack that killed 10 people.

A statement by the hybrid United Nations and African Union peacekeeping force, UNAMID, says that mourners brought 10 bodies reportedly killed in Friday's attack to the gate of its headquarters in Darfur on Saturday.

UNAMID says the Sudanese military blocked its convoy from reaching the area of the alleged attack to gather information on the incident.

Friday's attack reportedly took place in Sigili village, located in the Shawa area in North Darfur state.

It is not clear who was behind the killings. Sudan's government has been battling rebel groups in Darfur since 2003. More than 300,000 people have been killed in the conflict.
