Three people were killed, and five others injured in Abu Karinka locality, East Darfur, on Tuesday.

In an attack by a group of Rizeigat warriors on Ma’aliya living in the area of El Sahab in Abu Karinka locality on Tuesday, three Ma’aliya were shot dead, and two others were wounded. Three Rizeigat sustained injuries too, Ali El Taher Sharef, the Commissioner of Ed Daein locality told Radio Dabanga.

Sharef, who is also heading the East Darfur State Committee for Containing Tribal Conflicts, reported that army forces have entered the areas of Adila, Abu Karinka, and El Fado, in order to contain the situation and prevent any future clashes.

In clashes between the Rizeigat and Ma’aliya last Saturday, 44 tribesmen from both sides were killed and injured.

A reconciliation conference between the two tribes is scheduled to resume on 10 August.
