Sudan: 15 killed in new clashes between rival ethnic groups

Sudan: 15 killed in new clashes between rival ethnic groups

Khartoum, Oct 20 (Prensa Latina) The latest outbreak of armed clashes between Hausa and Berber ethnic groups in the country's southern Blue Nile state a few hours ago resulted in 15 people killed, official sources stated in Khartoum on Thursday.

A dozen wounded were treated at the hospital in Wad al-Mahi.

The fighting broke out over the possession of lands, forbidden to the Hausa by ancient law, the same reason for the outbreak of violence in Wad al-Mahi last week, when 13 people were killed, according to a report from medical sources.

The deployment in the area of Army units as a deterrent force was insufficient to calm the situation, according to testimonies of residents in the area where a nighttime curfew is in force.
