11 KILLED IN CHAD HERDERS-FARMERS’ CLASH

Eleven people were killed in fighting between nomadic herders and sedentary farmers in a dispute over trampled crops in southern Chad, the local governor said on Wednesday.

The violence broke out on Monday, causing the death of three herders and eight farmers, the governor of Moyen-Chari province, Abbadi Sahir, told our correspondent on phone.
