A key member of a Shia-Sunni Peace
Jirga in northwest Pakistan was killed and his companion injured in an attack by unidentified armed men.
Canada`s top diplomat has said the recent jirga hosted by Afghan Prez Karzai
marked an "important step" in efforts to bring peace to the war-torn nation.
"Peace jirga" could set the agenda for ending years of war.
The Afghan government is expected to
announce soon that a traditional "peace jirga" of political,
tribal and community leaders will be delayed to late May,
Western diplomats said Wednesday.
