Interethnic clashes in Sudan trigger UN alarm

Khartoum, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) The fighting between the Hausa and Berber ethnic groups in southeastern Sudan is alarming, a post on Twitter of the UN Integrated Mission for the Transition (Unitams) says.

Last Thursday at least 15 people were killed in armed clashes between the two communities in areas near the town of Wahi el Mad, Blue Nile state; the total toll of clashes since last July exceeds 155, according to concurrent data.

The Unitams communication considers that peace between the two groups requires the existence of a ‘functional and credible government’ capable of restoring security and addressing the roots of the conflict.

The Hausa claim their right to own land in their areas of residence, which is forbidden to them by de jure and de facto ancestral laws.

The transitional government, headed by General Abdel Fattah al Burhan, decreed a state of emergency in the area, including a curfew, but the measure was to avoid the fighting of hours ago, characterized by its unusual fierceness.
