Sudan quells latest clashes in Darfur

Bloomberg

Sudanese forces quelled latest inter-communal clashes in Darfur, a state governor said, as authorities grapple with violence that’s killed more than 100 people in broader region after peacekeepers began withdrawing.
A joint military force managed to control fighting that erupted between Arab and non-Arab communities in South Darfur and left dozens dead and wounded, state-run news agency reported, citing governor Musa Mahdi.
The government deployed more security forces after about three days of separate fighting around a displaced persons camp in West Darfur’s state capital that killed at least 129 people.
The violence poses a test for Sudan’s transitional government, which signed a peace deal with rebels from war-torn western
region last year.
and is increasingly responsible for security as a long-running joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission pulls out.
