Five residents in Kass, South Darfur, were injured in an attack by camel herders on Wednesday.

According to the residents in Krukuli village, the reason for the attack was that the farmers refused to let the herders' camels graze on their farms.

“After they threatened the farmers, the camel herders attacked the farmers with sticks and injured five of them.”

A farmer in Krukuli said that the incident followed the announcement of the Sudanese government to collect weapons in Shattaya.

Krukuli village is one of the villages where about 27 families returned after the reconciliation and coexistence conference that was held in Shattaya last year.
