Tribal dispute claims 4 lives in Badghis

Mar 07, 2011 - 14:26

QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon): A dispute over grazing lands in the northwestern province of Baghis has left four people dead, officials said on Monday.

Two tribes, who have a history of enmity, fought over pasture for their animals on Sunday evening in Maqur district, provincial crime branch chief, Col. Abdul Qadar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Two people were killed from Asal Khan tribe, while two were killed and another injured from the Haji Zareef tribe, he said.

Police were unable to reach to the scene because of security concerns, but elders from the Hotak tribe, which was not involved in the dispute, were able to resolve the issue, he said.

"The two tribes have had problems since earlier times," a Hotak elder, Matiullah, said.

Police were unable to get to the area because of the presence of militants, he said.

Two people were injured in a similar clash two months ago in Nahar-i-Aab district of Aab-i-Kamari district.
