Four more suspects involved in Aswan tribal clashes arrested


Aswan security services arrested on Thursday four suspects for their alleged involvement in earlier clashes between two tribes, making the total number of suspects arrested 31 persons from the two tribes.

Two of the suspects belong to one tribe, while the other two belong to the other tribe.

A least 25 persons were killed, dozens were injured as clashes broke out earlier this month between Nubians from the village of Daboud and the Beni Helal tribe reportedly after a girl belonging to one of the tribes was harassed by a man of the other tribe. Moreover, abusive graffiti against both parties had been spraypainted on the walls of a secondary school.
