Jigjiga (HOL) - At least three people were killed and others wounded in an inter-clan conflict between two Somali militias in the Wardheer district of the Dollo region in Ethiopia's Somali Regional State.

The Minister of Information of the Somali Regional State, Abdikhadir Rashid, told BBC Amharic on Wednesday that security forces reached the area and successfully settled the tension. He did not provide further details about the motive behind the conflict.

Last Tuesday, the Ogaden National Liberation Front condemned the conflict between the two communities in the Wardheer district and asked the government to separate the warring factions and stop the bloodshed immediately.

Recently, there has been clan conflict over agricultural land, but it is unclear what sparked the new fighting in the Wardheer district.
