Two people were killed and others wounded Wednesday evening in a clash between tribesmen in the Markondi area of Kubum locality in South Darfur.

Members of the Salamat and Beni Halba tribes clashed in a dispute over stolen cattle.

Salamat leader Mousa Bashir told Radio Dabanga that the Beni Halba were able to recover some cattle stolen from the Markondi area on Wednesday. “On their way back, they tried to take cattle from the Salamat”.

This led to a clash between the two sides, killing two people and wounding three others on both sides. Bashir said that the authorities, civil administration, and mayors were able to contain the clashes.
