JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Acting governor of eastern Nuristan province alleged that foreign hands were fuelling tribal feud in the province for their vested interests.
Hafiz Abdul Qayyum said enmity between two tribes of Kamdish and Kushtooz villages erupted 16 years ago in Kamdish district, which left 400 persons dead and 150 wounded.
Hundreds of families migrated to other areas because of clashes between the two warring tribes, he added.

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Residents and officials of eastern Nuristan province have urged the incoming government to pay the province special attention because it had been ignored in the past.

Abu Bakar, a resident of Paroon, the provincial capital, said Nuristan was a mountainous region, where most dwellers were associated with the livestock business.

He said Nuristanis had no option but to raise household animals for profit and suggested that mining projects could also help generate jobs for the locals.
