Dozens of people were killed in clashes this week between two Arab nomad tribes in southern Darfur, local reports said Thursday, as officials there downplayed the reports, claiming the situation was under control. The development came as the United Nations on Tuesday passed a resolution to send 26,000 peacekeepers to Darfur, raising hopes for the deployment of a force that could for the first time provide real protection to civilians in the embattled region. Also Thursday, at a meeting of the African Union's Peace and Security Council in Ethiopia, five African countries pledged to contribute troops to the joint AU-U.N. force for Darfur, with Addis Ababa saying it may offer as many as 5,000 soldiers.
