UNITED NATIONS, July 19 (UPI) -- The United Nations commended the Republic of Guinea Friday for restoring calm in the country after at least 57 people were killed this week in tribal clashes.

The Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said order was returned after three days of violence between the Guerze and Konianke tribes in the West African country.

A curfew was declared Tuesday, and the government sent a delegation to facilitate negotiations between the tribes. Security and defense forces were also brought to the area of the fighting, a U.N. statement said.
