Security forces kill three people in Sudan

Khartoum, Oct 27 (Prensa Latina) A clash between Sudanese security forces and tribal groups north of Ad Damazin, in the Blue Nile region, killed three people, police authorities reported on Thursday. The incident followed the imposition of a state of emergency in the area, amid the spread of inter-ethnic violence, which has killed more than 250 people in recent days.

Last week, the situation turned violent when several protesters stormed the command of the Fourth Infantry Division and set fire to the regional government facilities and vital installations.

In an effort to control the situation, the army launched intensive campaigns to disarm civilians and removed barriers erected to obstruct the movement of vehicles.

A joint force of the army and Rapid Support Forces removed barricades erected by tribal groups in Ad Damazin and fired real bullets, killing three people and injuring another five, the Sudan Tribune reported.

Following the clash, tribal groups blocked the road and set up checkpoints to prevent those fearing for their lives from leaving the Blue Nile region.
