Description:
Mahsud (, also spelled Masood, Mahsood, Masud, Maseed or Mehsud (in Pashto) is a Pashtun tribe in South Waziristan, a tribal region in Pakistan.

The Burki are considered by other tribes/khels of South Waziristan to be close brethren of the Mahsud due to marital and other ties and the fact that the Burki have lived in and controlled Kaniguram for over a thousand years. Some Mahsuds (Masoods) live in Afghanistan, in particular in Loogar, Wardak, Ghazni, Kunduz, and Baghlan provinces, as well as in Germany and Great Britain.
