Tribal fighting in Darfur leaves 60 dead
Khartoum (Sudan): Sudan`s state news agency says 60 people were killed in renewed fighting between two Arab tribes over mining rights in the northern Darfur region.
The United Nations says fighting broke out last month in the Jebel Amir area, leaving 100 dead in January and forcing 70,000 people to flee their homes.
The state news agency said the fighting yesterday was the worst since a cease-fire agreement was reached last month. The agency said fighting began when a group of armed tribesmen in vehicles and riding camels attacked the El-Sireaf area in North Darfur.
Sudan`s western region of Darfur has been afflicted by violence since 2003, when rebels took up arms against the central government in Khartoum. Fighting between government forces and among tribes breaks out periodically in the area.
