Tribal clashes in the Sudanese state of West Darfur have left 132 people dead and thousands fleeing their homes, the state governor said Thursday
Bloodshed began on Saturday when unknown gunmen shot at Massalit tribesmen heading into the town. Two were killed and two others were wounded, prompting a rapid escalation in tensions.
The fighting is the latest in a resurgence of violence since a peace deal was signed last October and UN peacekeepers began to withdraw. The United Nations said there have been reports of attacks on women and children.
