At least 11 reportedly killed in Sudan tribal clashes


At least 11 people have been reportedly killed and around 20 others injured in clashes in Sudan’s restive Darfur region.

“The number of bodies that have arrived at the hospital has reached 11,” a doctor at Nyala hospital said, adding that at least 20 people were treated for gunshot wounds.

The clashes began on Wednesday between Arab herders and the Daju minority and other non-Arab groups, around 20 kilometers (12 miles) from the South Darfur state capital Nyala, witnesses disclosed.

According to the official news agency, four people were killed after a group of herders riding camels attacked Amuri village on Friday. It added that the fight claimed the lives of two other people between Wednesday and Thursday.

The spokesman for the General Coordination for Refugees and Displaced in Darfur charity, Adam Regal, said the death toll might be much higher as the fight is still going on.
