Clashes in a refugee camp in Sudan's restive Darfur region left six people dead, U.N.-African Union peacekeepers said, days after violence elsewhere in the area claimed the lives of at least 37 people dead.

The spokesman for the UNAMID mission, Chris Cycmanick, said Saturday the fighting took place in the Hamidia refugee camp in West Darfur late Friday night and continued intermittently through to Saturday morning.

According to witnesses in the camp, the clashes between different groups in the camp left six people dead, Cycmanick said. Thirty-three people were wounded.

It was not immediately clear what sparked the violence.
