At least 16 killed as Pakistan tribes clash over coal mine

At least 16 people have been killed and more than 10 injured in a clash between two tribes over the ownership of a coal mine in northwest Pakistan.

Officials said the incident late on Monday was part of a decades-old tribal rivalry over the mine in Darra Adam Khel area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, bordering Afghanistan.

Local police officer Zahid Khan confirmed 16 deaths in the clash between the area’s Sunny Khel and Akhorwal tribes.

“At least 11 members of the Sunny Khel tribe were killed whereas five members of Akhorwal tribe were buried last night,” he told Al Jazeera on Tuesday.

“The tribes involved have agreed on a ceasefire and a jirga [tribal council meeting] was held to resolve the matter,” Khan added.

Jirga refers to a group of elders belonging to various tribes which is empowered to resolve intra-tribal rivalries and conflicts. It is often used in Pakistan’s northwestern areas which are dominated by the ethnic Pashtun population.
