LIBYA-UNREST-TRIBES-TOUBOU

An Arab tribesman and resident in Gardah in the southern Libyan town of Sabha fires a rocket launcher as fresh clashes between the Toubou tribe and Arab tribesmen from Sabah broke out on March 29 2012. The Toubou, who are black oasis farmers by tradition, say they are defending themselves against attack by Arab tribesmen in the region, and have accused the Libyan authorities of backing those gunmen as part of a campaign of “ethnic cleansing.” AFP PHOTO / STR
