Over 100 dead in clashes in Sudan’s Kordofan: Tribes

More than 100 people have been killed in several days of fighting between two clans in Sudan’s oil-rich West Kordofan region, tribal leaders said.       

The clashes started on Sunday over a land dispute between two sub-groups of the powerful Misseriya tribe in Al-Quwik area near the border with South Sudan. The fighting between the Zioud and the Awlad Amran groups left 133 people dead, the head of the Misseriya, Mokhtar Babo Nimir, said. Babo Nimir did not know how many people had been wounded but said the figure was “high”. Both sides were using heavy machine guns in the clashes, which were still raging on Thursday, a second tribal leader in the area said. “There are no govt troops on the ground to separate the fighters and more than 100 have been killed fro,” said the leader.
