Sudanese authorities on Thursday announced that 51 civilians have been killed and 28 others injured in tribal clashes in Kordofan region, declaring a one-month state of emergency in the area.

Violent tribal clashes broke out last Sunday between Hamar and Kababish tribes in Sudan's Kordofan region.

Governments of North and West Kordofan States issued a temporary decree declaring a one-month state of emergency prohibiting assembling and arms carrying in the two states.

Tribal confrontations spread in Sudan due to several reasons including banditry activities and disputes over pastures, besides spread of vengeance among the tribes.
