One tribesman was killed and others injured in a fierce clash between Rizeigat and Ma’aliya in the area of Abu Dungul in Sheiria locality, East Darfur, on Sunday. Abu Dungul village was pillaged and burnt to ashes.

Hundreds of people fled their homes in Abu Dungul, when the village was attacked after a clash between Rizeigat and Ma’aliya tribesmen, in which one man was killed, and several were wounded. Rizeigat raided the village, and plundered the houses and shops, after which they torched the entire village.

Member of Parliament for Sheiria constituency, Feisal Ahmed El Nur, told Radio Dabanga that the situation in the area is “extremely unstable; the situation can explode any moment”.

He explained that herders have overrun Sheiria locality with their camels which are damaging vast tracts of farmlands. “Many farmers fear that they will not be able to harvest their crops, and many people expect more clashes in the near future.”
