At least 11 people have been killed and 18 others wounded during the recent tribal conflict in Kass locality in South Darfur. Authorities have arrested 200 suspects and transferred them to Nyala for further investigations.

On Thursday, Radio Dabanga reported that six people were killed and eight others were wounded in a tribal clash that erupted in the area of Sengeta, 20 km south of Kass in South Darfur.


On Monday, a senior army officer allegedly raped a 17-year-old woman near the town of Turr in South Darfur.

The family of the victim filed a complaint with the police of Turr against the man, a lieutenant stationed at the military garrison of Turr, and then took their relative to the hospital of Nierteti.
