Iskushuban (PP News Desk) — Two subclan militias have clashed in the countryside of Iskushuban district.
Disagreement on turning a part of the countryside into a village sparked the clashes.
One of the two feuding sub-clans intends to establish a village in a part of the countryside that is accessible to all sub-clans in the area.
Sources indicate six people have thus far been killed in the clashes, with a further thirteen people wounded.
Reinforcements have now reportedly reached the area and led to the resumption of hostilities.
Officials from the Bari Regional Administration in northern Somalia have left for Iskushuban to attempt to stop the feuding.
The Puntland State Government banned unplanned urbanisation and unauthorised sealing off of countryside areas for business purposes.
