Violence Claims 10 In Delta State

Lagos- Nigeria (PANA) -- A fresh outbreak of communal violence in the trouble-prone Nigeria's oil-rich Delta State has claimed 10 lives and left many others injured, the local media reported Tuesday.
The fighting, between the two Ijaw communities of Odimodi and Ogulagha, erupted again on Sunday after about three months lull.
The communities have been fighting over patronage from oil companies operating in the area.
Seven persons were reported killed in the first round of violence in April.
