In Darfur, Tribal Rivalries Claim Nearly 100

  • VOA News

Fighting between rival Arab tribes in Sudan's long-troubled Darfur region has killed as many as 94 people.

Leaders from the Misseriya and Salamat tribes accuse each side of attacking the other.

Rival tribes in Sudan frequently clash over land, water, and mineral resources.

United Nations and African Union officials say the fighting is worsening and is a cause of concern, saying civilians are affected the most.

The U.N. says more than 300,000 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands of others forced from their homes since an uprising against the Sudanese government and reprisals by government-backed Arab militias began 10 years ago.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
