17 killed in tribal clashes in Sudan

Khartoum, Dec 14 (IANS) At least 17 people were killed and 30 injured in tribal clashes in Sudan’s South Darfur state, the media reported.

“Violent clashes broke out between Rizeigat and Miseria tribes in South Darfur state which resulted in the killing of at least 17 people and injuring of around 30, some of them in serious conditions,” Xinhua news agency reported.

The security authorities have sent military reinforcements to Bilail locality to prevent renewal of the clashes, particularly after the two tribes mobilised their fighters for a probable battle.
