bloody when supporters of the Allied People's Movement reportedly hit one of the supporters of the APC with their vehicle and killed him.

The newspaper cites an eye witness as saying that the development triggered violence as supporters of both parties engaged in free-for-all which led to scores from the both sides sustaining various degrees of  injury .
