Darfur tribal hostilities displace thousands

Fresh fighting between rebels and government troops forces refugees, mainly women and children, to flee homes.

    Fighting between rival tribes in Sudan's Darfur region has forced thousands of people to flee their homes.

    The refugees, who are mostly women and children, are now seeking safety in the neighbouring region of Kasla in eastern Chad.

    There has been fighting in Darfur between rebels and government forces for more than ten years, killing tens of thousands and displacing millions.
