Blue Nile

Funj-Hausa tensions boiled over in July following accusations from the Funj, who have long inhabited Blue Nile state, that the Hausa, who inhabit farming areas across the country, were trying to lay claim to parts of their land.

There has also been sporadic violence in eastern coastal regions and western Darfur despite a nationwide peace deal signed by some rebel groups in Juba in 2020.
Protesters have accused Sudan’s military rulers of failing to protect civilians and stoking tribal conflict.

Military leaders, who seized power in October 2021, saying they wanted to preserve the country’s stability, said they were working to shore up the peace deal and improve security.
