Five people were killed Saturday in clashes between Sudanese troops and tribal militiamen in the state of North Darfur, military sources said.

A group of armed men attacked soldiers patrolling in Mellit, the largest city of North Darfur. Sudanese forces returned fire, killing five and injuring dozens, sources said.

Clashes between security forces and militia in the larger region of Darfur have continued since 2003. 

A United Nations report published in 2008 said the conflict left nearly 300,000 people dead and 2.5 million displaced, while the Sudanese government put the number of deaths at 10,000.
