Baghdad (IraqiNews) An official source informed, on Saturday, that the Police Chief of Hamza District in Mukdadiyah, was killed in a tribal clash in Baghdad.

In a press statement, the source said that the Police Cief of al-Hamza Districtm Brigadier General, Jabbar Asadi, was killed by gun shot during a tribal dispute in the capital Baghdad.

The Iraqi government and non-governmental organizations launched many initiatives over the past period to persuade rival tribesmen to sign petitions to stop their fighting, which claims the lives of several people daily.

Chieftains were also urged to intervene to put an end to tribal disputes in the country through forcing tribesmen to hand over their weapons to the Iraqi army.
