#AceNewsReport – Jan.04: The inter-communal clashes that erupted on Dec. 29 were the worst in West Darfur for years, though details of casualties have been slow to emerge: The violence presents a challenge to military and civilian authorities sharing power following the overthrow of former president Omar al-Bashir last April: They are trying to broker lasting peace in Darfur and other parts of the country affected by civil conflict.

“ The violence in West Darfur broke out after a dispute between Arab and African ethnic groups in the state capital of el-Geneina: Arab militiamen raided a camp for internally displaced people and attacked and burned several villages, according to residents: The joint African Union-United Nations peacekeeping mission in Darfur, UNAMID, said on Friday it was deeply concerned by the “deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation in el-Geneina and the surrounding area”

On Thursday and Friday there were also clashes in the east of the country at Port Sudan between Beni Amer and Nuba ethnic groups that left eight people dead and dozens injured, according to a local doctors’ group: The Beni Amer and Nuba have clashed in the past but signed a reconciliation deal last September following violence that left at least 16 dead.
