Sudan: UN - Clashes Between Dajo, Beni Halba Displace 200 in South Darfur

Khartoum — A Norwegian organisation reported the arrival of about 200 people in a South Darfur displaced camp fleeing tribal clashes between the Dajo and Beni Halba on 21 June, as stated by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

The NGO Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) said the displaced come from the Ereida village in Kubum locality in South Darfur. According to community leaders, two Dajo tribesmen were killed and many houses were destroyed, OCHA says.

The agency says that following verification of the new arrivals by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), food and other relief items will be distributed to the new arrivals.
