The Sudanese government announced, on Wednesday evening, that 30 people were killed in clashes that broke out between two tribes in the southwestern state of South Darfur.
The office of the Prime Minister,” Abdullah Hamdouk”, stated in a statement that “the governor of South Darfur State submitted a detailed report on the situation in the state, which showed that the conflict that broke out between some of the population and tribal components claimed the lives of 30 people.”
The government is seeking to end the multiple ethnic conflicts that Sudan has endured almost continuously since its independence in 1956.
In March, the United Nations warned that if armed rebel activity had receded in Darfur, resolving tribal tensions in the region was the only way to avoid more violence.
The Darfur region, whose area exceeds France, has been in turmoil since 2003 when groups belonging to African minorities took up arms against the Khartoum government, accusing it of marginalizing the region economically and politically.
