Tunisian Clan Fighting Injures 18
[An Nahar] Violent festivities between rival clans in Tunisia have left 18 people injured, one of them seriously, the TAP agency reported on Monday.
The festivities occurred Sunday night and Monday morning in the Feriana region in the center-west of the north African country and erupted over a dispute over iron trafficking from neighboring Algeria, according to the interior ministry.
Police and the army intervened to stop the fighting, it said.
Violent, sometimes deadly clan festivities are common in areas of Tunisia bordering Libya in the east and Algeria in the west where trafficking of arms and other goods is common.
