Two people were killed and five others sustained injuries as two groups clashed over a land dispute in the Ghulam Ali area of North Waziristan, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Monday.
According to police, gunfire was exchanged between the people belonging to Sher Khel and Bori Khel tribes, which resulted in the deaths and injuries to one of the parties.

Meanwhile, the injured – Barkat Khan, Rehmat Khan, Fazal, Afsar Khan and Karimullah – were rushed to the DHQ Hospital in Miranshah.
Use of lethal weapons is common in tribal disputes in the country where people often resort to violence over property, marriage and other petty issues.
