Tribal clashes broke out in North Darfur state of Friday left 5 people dead and 5 injured, according to the tribal leaders.
The Arab Zayadiya tribe and the Berti, a non-Arab group, have been battling with heavy weapons around the Mallit area north of El Fasher, the state capital of North Darfur.
The Zayadiya said six of their men were killed and the Berti said they suffered 13 dead, with both sides yesterday claiming the other attacked first
Eyewitnesses as saying that several Zayadiya people left Mellit on Friday to evacuate some wounded fellow tribesmen on the road linking between El-Fashir and Mellit before they clashed with those armed militia.
Further, six people from Arab Zayadia tribe were killed and 4 others injured on Thursday in an ambush by an armed militia on the same road.
Local authorities said that large military reinforcements have arrived in the locality of Mellit, 50 km north west of El-Fashir, to protect the students sitting for Sudan’s high school exams against any potential fighting between the two tribes following the recent killing incidents.
Several traditional administration leaders in the state have warned against eruption of tribal fighting between Zayadia and Berti particularly after the armed mobilization which could lead to a wide state of lawlessness.
The western region has been mired in violence since 2003 when ethnic insurgents rebelled against Khartoum's Arab-dominated government, complaining of their marginalization.
