Sudan: Dozens killed in tribal clashes in eastern Sudan
At least 25 people have been killed in clashes between ethnic groups in a port city in eastern Sudan, according to a doctors’ association.
The Central Doctors’ Committee said in a statement on Wednesday that about 90 others were wounded in the fighting that began on Sunday between members of the Bani Aarem and Nuba ethnic groups in Port Sudan, a key international trade harbour on the Red Sea.
Local media reported that several houses and shops were set on fire in the violence.
“This is not the first time that clashes have broken out between the Bani Aarem and Nuba tribes,” said Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan, reporting from Khartoum.
