95 killed in tribal clashes in Pakistan

PAKISTAN: Upto 95 people were reportedly killed and 200 injured in a single day of clashes between rival tribes in Pakistan's troubled North West Frontier Province which is already engulfed by steep rise in militancy violence.

The fighting between Khurram and Bangash tribesmen re-erupted on Saturday after a brief lull and a bloody Sunday left a trail of 95 tribesmen killed. The clashes in the Khurram agency, media reports said, were sparked almost a month ago by the burning of a tribesman's tractor by a rival tribesman.

Reports suggested that the Bangash tribe is being supported by local Taliban militia. Missiles, rockets and other heavy weapons were used by the rival tribesmen during the clashes.
