LI, AI clashes kill 7, injure 4 in Khyber Agency
MIRANSHAH/KHYBER AGENCY: Seven people including two women were killed and four others injured on Saturday in clashes between the Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) and Ansar-ul-Islam in the Tirah Valley of Khyber Agency.
The militants groups exchanged heavy fire, although a jirga of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) led by Shujaul Malik was due on Saturday in the valley to defuse the tension in the area. The two groups have been fighting in the valley on the Pak-Afghan border for a fortnight now. The clashes have already claimed over 100 lives.
