Seventeen persons were wounded during continued confrontations between the Misseriya and Nuwayba in Selingi, a region southeast of Zalingei. Observers who talked to Radio Dabanga told that the clashes would spread widely in the area unless they are contained. A mediation committee from both sides came under fire from an unknown group when it was on their way to Selinge. Sources told Radio Dabanga the committee was forced to come back. No causalities were reported.
