23 dead in tribal fighting in Egypt

– Feuding between an Arab tribe and a Nubian family left 23 killed in the southern Egyptian province of Aswan, leading the nation’s military to intervene.

At least 50 were injured in clashes between the Bani Hilal tribesmen and Nubian villagers, the Health Ministry said by email. Fighting initially started as a graffiti war between students from the rival sides at a local school, the Interior Ministry said in an emailed statement.

The rival factions attended a reconciliation meeting Thursday, and a quarrel broke out. It spiraled into a firefight that killed four, according to the Interior Ministry. The next day, renewed fighting left dozens more dead or wounded.

Ibrahim Abdeen, a Nubian resident and activist, said the fighting escalated after members of the Arab tribe killed three Nubians during Friday prayers.

The crisis is being contained after armed forces intervened “amid indications that the Muslim Brotherhood elements are involved in igniting the strife,” Egyptian army spokesman Ahmed Mohamed Ali said in a statement posted online Saturday.
