Warring Nangarhar tribes agree on truce (Video)

JALALABAD (PAN): Two major tribes have agreed on a three-year ceasefire over a land dispute that had claimed several lives from the two sides in the eastern province of Nangarhar, an official said on Monday.

Speaking at a joint conference with Nangarhar Governor Gul Agha Sehrzai, presidential adviser on tribal affairs, Asadullah Wafa, hoped the ceasefire between the two sub-tribes of Shinwari tribe --- Seepai and Alisherkhel --- would end the two-year-old dispute.

Several men of the tribes have been killed in clashes over the land in Kahi desert situated between Achin and Spinghar districts, he added.

Both sides had agreed in written form at the provincial court not to attack each other for next three years, the adviser said.
