Tribal conflicts renewed in Port Sudan, the capital of the Red Sea state, on Monday, but this time between the  Hadendoa tribe and Bani Amer, where they used white weapons.

It was because of a political symposium between the Revolutionary Front Vice-President Amin Daoud, and the leading figure in the Revolutionary Front, Tom Hajo, where Hadendoa refused this symposium to be held because Amin Daoud belong to Beni Amer tribe.

According to eyewitnesses who spoke to “Sudan Daily,” the state security committee canceled the symposium because of the violent clashes between the two tribes.

Witnesses said the army intervened and halted the conflict between the two tribes, and the state security committee imposed a curfew from 5 pm to 5 am.

This is not the first time that the tribal events outbreak in the city of Port Sudan, where last August witnessed deadly events between the Nuba tribe and Bani Amer but the sovereign council intervened to end the violence.
