Sudan has declared a state of emergency and a night curfew in parts affected by ethnic clashes.

Violence was reported in some parts of the coastal Port Sudan city.

At least five people were killed and 13 injured, according to the state media Suna.

The Red Sea state governor’s media office did not give any figures in their statement.

Ethnic clashes are common in Sudan among rival groups with some being over shared natural resources.

The statement by the state governor media office gave no details of the clashes and did not mention casualties.

However, state news agency Suna quoted a local medical official as saying the clashes left at least five people killed and 13 wounded.

The report said the clashes broke out at some areas in the city of Port Sudan.

Red Sea state, in eastern Sudan, has a history of deadly clashes between the Beni Amer and Nuba, even after leaders from the two tribes signed a peace agreement to stem the violence in 2019.
