Fresh fighting between feuding Arab tribes in Sudan's Darfur region has killed 11 people, tribal leaders said on Tuesday, adding to worsening violence in the region.
The Gimir and Beni Halba tribes have been clashing over land ownership since at least April, around Edd al-Fursan about 100 kilometres (60 miles) southwest of the South Darfur state capital Nyala.
Abaker al-Toum, a Gimir chief, told AFP the Beni Halba attacked three Gimir villages on Monday.
"They came on vehicles, motorcycles, horses and camels, with heavy weapons," he said.
