Close to 50 people have been killed in the latest outbreak of tribal violence in Sudan’s Darfur region, say officials.

“The violence began with an argument and it spiraled into killing six people on Saturday and then on Sunday more than 40 people were killed,” West Darfur governor Khamis Abdallah tells AFP.

The Doctors’ Committee, an independent union, says that 48 people were killed in the Krink area of Darfur by live ammunition.
