At least 150 people were killed during two days of fighting in the latest round of ethnic clashes in Sudan’s southern Blue Nile state over land disputes. The fighting lasted for two days.

Crowds took to the streets of Blue Nile’s state capital Damazin on Thursday in protest against a conflict that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people so far this year. The recent bloodshed is the worst it has been in recent weeks.

13 persons have been killed in southern Sudan as a result of renewed tribal hostilities.

Abbas Moussa, the head of the Wad al-Mahi hospital, stated that between Wednesday and Thursday, a total of 150 individuals, including women, children, and elderly people, had been killed. In addition, there were around 86 persons injured as a result of the violence.

Residents of Blue Nile reported seeing hundreds of people fleeing fierce gunfire and homes being set ablaze after clashes broke out in the region a week ago after it was alleged that members of the Hausa people and opposing factions had argued over territory.
The Wad al-Mahi region is located about 310 miles (500 kilometers) to the south of the capital city of Khartoum. This is where the majority of the fighting has taken place.

On Thursday, hundreds of people took to the streets of Damazin, with some of them demanding that the governor of the state be removed from his position. The chants of the demonstrators were “No, no to violence.”

Since the most recent round of violence began on October 13, United Nations aid chief for Sudan Eddie Rowe expressed his “very worry” on the ongoing skirmishes, adding that “an unverified 170 people have been killed and 327 have been injured.”
