Mesfin Assefa, an official in the Oromia region, said Sunday that federal and local forces restored order and that fighting has stopped. Fighting between the Borana and Garri tribes has broken out over the last week.
Local authorities say about two dozen people were killed, including two police, after fighting started Wednesday. More people were injured when thousands fled to Kenya. Armed men also set ablaze a number of houses.
Tribal clashes over land disputes are common in the region.
