KURRAM AGENCY: At least 13 people have died and 16 injured in a clash between two tribes in an ongoing row over the distribution of irrigation water in the Kurram Agency.

The clash erupted over water distribution as Shalozan Tangi tribe stopped water supply to the Shalozan tribe. Both sides have been using heavy weapons in the fighting, while several efforts to stop fighting have proved futile so far.

For the past two weeks, the two tribes have been locked in battle, killing 100 people and injuring scores of tribesmen.
