S.Sudan must punish those who downed U.N. helicopter - Russia

MOSCOW, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Russia on Saturday called on South Sudan to punish those responsible for shooting down a United Nations helicopter, killing its four Russian crew, and take steps to ensure such incidents do not happen again.

A Russian Foreign Ministry statement named the victims and said the "tragic occurrence" in the African nation on Friday underscored the need to provide security for U.N. peacekeeping missions.
