Intercommon clashes in Sudan’s West Darfur state have left at least 132 people dead in recent days, its governor said Thursday.
Members of the Massalit and Arab communities have fought since Saturday in and around the state capital El Geneina, trading gun and heavy weapons fire.
Sudan’s government has declared a state of emergency in the region.
According to medical reports, the number of dead is now 132.
But the UN had said the conflict was between Sudan’s Massalit and the Arab communities, the latest in a string of clashes since January, which has forced over 100,000 people to flee their homes.
