#1 Fascinating! The two are baggara (cattle nomad) Arab tribes who have traditionally preyed on the African tribes of Bahr al-Ghazal.  It appears the Rizayqat are poaching on traditional Misseriya land in South Kordofan. For the sake of mankind in general it can only be hoped that they wipe each other out.
