The Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors (CCSD) said on Wednesday that 176 were killed and 220 were injured in armed clashes that broke out on Monday in Sudan's West Darfur state, Trend reports citing Reuters.

"Some bodies were buried without being autopsied or reported," the medics' union aligned with protesters against the Oct. 25 military coup added.

Unrest across Darfur, where a war between rebels and government forces backed by militias claimed an estimated 300,000 lives in the early 2000s and displaced millions, has increased in the past two years.
