Eleven people were killed in fighting between nomadic herders and sedentary farmers in a dispute over trampled crops in southern Chad, the local governor said Wednesday.

Violence broke out in the district of Koumogo on Monday, causing the death of three herders and eight farmers, the governor of Moyen-Chari province, Abbadi Sahir told newsmen.

According to Sahir, a herder was killed after cattle trampled some crops. Herders then opened fire on a farmers’ camp in retaliation.

Police have been deployed at the camp, with the governor assuring that he was in negotiations with both sides to calm tensions.
