JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Six members of a family have been killed as a result of personal enmity in the Behsud district of eastern Nangarhar province, authorities said on Wednesday.

It added four brothers entered the house of their uncle named Salam and killed him, his wife and four cousins. The shooting was triggered by family enmity.
