Cairo: Tribal clashes erupted over the weekend between Arabs and non-Arabs in Sudan's western Darfur region, killing at least 36 people, the state-run news agency reported. The clashes broke out in South Darfur province between the Arab Taaisha and the non-Arab Falata tribes and also wounded at least 32, SUNA news agency said late Sunday.

More troops were deployed to contain the clashes in the area of Um Dafuk, west of the South Darfur's provincial capital of Nyala. The area is on the border with the Central African Republic. A statement later said the clashes subsided.  The violence grew out of a land dispute between the two tribes, according to an aid worker who spoke on condition of anonymity for safety reasons.
