Green-on-green clash in Khyber tribal region kills 32
[Dawn] An intense gun-battle erupted between two banned myrmidon groups in Khyber Agency's Tirah Valley on Friday, with at least 32 snuffies so far killed in the clash.
Intelligence officials said the gun-battle started late Thursday between the proscribed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistain (TTP) and rival group Ansarul Islam (AI) in Tirah Valley's Maidan village. The dead included 23 Ansar fighters and nine TTP myrmidons, while several others were also injured.
Officials said the corpse count was likely to increase as the fighting had not yet ended.
