Inter-communal clashes in the Balail, Hajir, Togo, Umm Kuja, Abujabra, Damso, Tulus, and Katila areas (South Darfur state) killed at least 30 people on Tuesday, May 5. The violence reportedly involved rival members from the Fallata and Rizeigat tribes and was sparked by a cattle raid at 03:00 (local time). Sudanese authorities have deployed additional security forces to the area as the situation remains tense.
Further violence is likely over the near term.
Individuals present in Sudan, particularly in South Darfur state, are advised to monitor local developments, maintain a high degree of situational awareness, and remain vigilant for potential militant activity.
