Johannesburg - Fighting between rival Arab tribes over the
weekend in Sudan's volatile Darfur region has left at least 100 people dead, a
newspaper reported on Monday.
The Sudan Tribune, quoting sources in south-eastern Darfur,
said the clashes followed battles and cattle raids between the Rezeigat tribe
and the rival Maaliya earlier this month.
The region has seen increasing tribal violence over
competing land ownership claims.
An estimated 300 000 people were displaced by clashes in the
first five months of this year, according to the UN and AU hybrid peacekeeping
force in the western Sudanese region.
