Benghazi, 6 May 2015:
Sporadic shooting was heard in the southeastern oasis town of Kufra and the streets deserted this . . .[restrict]afternoon following a gunfight this morning at the university campus between Tebu and Zwai students which left two Zwai dead and at least four injured, including two female students.
No Tebus are said to have been injured in the fight.
It broke out following a heated argument between the members of the two groups. It is not the argument was about.
When news of the incident spread, shops shut and traffic disappeared from the streets as members of the town’s two rival communities headed for the safety of home. Zwai and Tebu elders are trying to calm matters but have not so far been successful. There are fears that the majority Zwai will seek revenge for the killings. So far, however, there have been no reports of any deaths or injuries.
In 2012, hundreds of local people were killed in fighting between the two ommunities and although there is now an official peace between them, low level violence and killings have continued. Four people were killed two month ago. Today’s bloodshed is seen as particularly shocking because it took pace at the university campus, part of Benghazi University.
