Tribal clashes in Sudan’s Darfur kill 18

Tribal clashes in Sudan’s restive Darfur region have killed at least 18 people and wounded 54, a local doctors’ committee said Monday.

The vast Darfur region was the scene of a bitter conflict that erupted in 2003, leaving around 300,000 people killed and 2.5 million displaced, according to the United Nations.

The conflict has subsided over the years, but ethnic and tribal clashes still periodically flare in the region over land and access to water.
More than 200 people were killed in tribal clashes in January, in some of the worst bloodsheds the region had witnessed in years.

The transitional government has pushed to build peace with rebel groups in Sudan’s main conflict zones, including Darfur.
