Aswan Feuding Tribes Approach Reconciliation

General coordinator of the mediation committee and president of Aswan University Mansour Kabash said the two rival Upper Egyptian tribes have approached final reconciliation.

In statements on Tuesday 1352014, Kabash said that the state officials and Al-Azhar Grand Imam Dr Ahmed el-Tayyeb are closely following up the developments into this matter.

Inter-tribal fighting took place between Bani Helal and Daboudiya in Aswan last month and left 26 dead and several others injured.

The clashes erupted after an alleged fight between two students.

El-Tayyeb formed the reconciliation committee after conducting a dialogue session in Aswan on 12 April in the aftermath of the bloody tribal clashes.
