ASWAN, Egypt - Two people were killed on Sunday when tribal clashes flared for a third day in the southern city of Aswan, security sources said.

At least 25 people have now been killed in the violence between members of the city's two big tribes, the Nubian and the Arab Beni Helal clans.

The prime minister and interior minister traveled to Aswan on Saturday afternoon to try to quell the tension as residents demanded an end to the bloodshed.
