Deadly Darfur clashes

The UN said on Friday it was “appalled” by the resurgence of violence in Sudan’s West Darfur region, saying all tribes responsible for the bloodshed must be disarmed.

The UN Human Rights Office called for independent investigations, adding that those responsible for abuses should be held accountable.

“We are appalled by the latest resurgence of violence between Massalit and Arab tribes in West Darfur in Sudan that left at least 87 people dead, more than 191 injured and forced thousands to flee their homes,” spokeswoman Marta Hurtado told reporters in Geneva.
