Tribal clashes that erupted over the weekend between Arabs and non-Arabs in Sudan's western Darfur region have killed at least 40 people and wounded around 60 others, the U.N. said Monday.
The violence was between the Arab Rizeigat and the Masalit tribes in Genena, the provincial capital of West Darfur province. It happened after unknown armed men on Saturday shot dead two people from the Masalit, according to the U.N. office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs.
