BANNU, October 11: Utmanzai tribesmen of North Waziristan held a Jirga to stop embezzlement in relief operations for the internally displaced persons of the tribal region and facilitate the displaced families.

The elders of Utmanzai tribe, in collaboration with the Muttahida Talaba Mahaz [United Students Front], held the Jirga in Bannu township. Tribal elders and political leaders addressed the gathering.

“The authorities should probe the distribution of compensation money among the IDPs. The tribal elders should be consulted on various issues, particularly the relief operation,” said a speaker. The second round of the Jirga would be held on 26 October.
