KHARTOUM: More than 60 people have been killed and another 60 injured in violence in Sudan’s West Darfur region, the United Nations (UN) has said.

About 500 militants attacked the village of Masteri in the West Darfur state on Saturday afternoon, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a statement on Sunday.

“This was one of the latest of a series of security incidents reported over the last week that left several villages and houses burned, markets and shops looted, and infrastructure damaged,” it said.

The clashes between different tribes in the region occurred earlier Saturday and lasted until late Sunday, state-run SUNA news agency reported, citing anonymous sources.
