No fewer than one hundred and forty-five (145) people left dead and over 180 others wounded this month in the violence in Sudan, according to the United Nations.

The tribal clashes occurred in West Darfur and South Kordofan provinces and were described as the deadliest in recent years.

According to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, OCHA, the violence erupted last week between two tribes, one Arab the other African, over a land dispute.


The clashes took place in the wake of October’s military coup that marked an end to the country’s short-lived transition to democracy.

According to OCHA, the fighting subsided following the deployment of troops to the area.

Authorities also declared a nightly curfew last week, but tensions remain high.

The violence puts into question the U.N. Security Council decision last year to dismantle the joint U.N.-African Union peacekeeping force’s mandate in the region.

Al-Bashir was indicted over a decade ago by the International Criminal Court for genocide and crimes against Humanity perpetrated in Darfur.
