Tribal clashes in Sudan’s Darfur kill dozens: Reports

Sudan: At least 36 persons were killed in Sudan’s western Darfur region after tribal clashes erupted over the weekend between Arabs and non-Arabs here.

The clashes broke out in South Darfur province between the Arab Taaisha and the non-Arab Falata tribes and also wounded at least 32.

The violence grew out of a land dispute between the two tribes, according to an aid worker who spoke on condition of anonymity for safety reasons.

Such clashes pose a significant challenge to efforts by Sudan’s transitional government to end decades-long rebellions in some areas like war-wrecked Darfur.
