(TAP) - Calm was restored to the villages of Tombar (north Kebili) and El Menchia (Souk Lahad, Kebili) on Saturday afternoon, after police and Army units intervened to avoid more clashes between young locals.

Saturday morning's violent clashes between youths from the two villages left seven injured, including some by buckshot.

An inter-village land dispute was behind the clashes.

Governor of Kebili Sami Ghabi told TAP a meeting will be held Monday at the headquarters of the governorate to find a solution to that said problem.

The meeting will bring together representatives of the two villages, civil society activists, MPs from the region and officials of local real estate divisions.
