"At least 20 persons, including several militants, were killed in the ongoing clashes between the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Tirah-based Ansarul Islam (AI) in various areas of Qamberkhel in Maidan on Saturday, tribal sources said. The sources said militants belonging to the TTP expanded the fighting to the Butan and Durbikhel areas where they torched more than a dozen houses after taking over the two areas. The members of AI launched a counter-attack in the Tarkikhel, Durbikhel and Butan areas but failed to clear them of the TTP." (03/17/13)
