16 killed in Pakistan tribal clash over coal-rich mountains

SIXTEEN people were killed over a decades-long land dispute between two tribes in Pakistan’s coal-rich northwest, police said today. 

The Akhorwal tribe opened fire on the Suni Khel tribe from an elevated position yesterday, police said, as the latter marked the boundaries of their territory in the mountainous area of Darra Adam Khel, less than 100km from the Afghan border.
