A UNAMID team visited Mellit, North Darfur, on 21 August to meet with community leaders and mitigate friction between the two main tribes in the area. The disagreements between the Al- Ziyadiah and Al-Berti tribes emerged on 15 August and resulted in violent clashes in which shops were looted and destroyed in Mellit's main market area and six people were killed and 12 injured.
