The second most affected region is Lezha with 102 families in blood feuds, 6 of which are isolated, 33 have left Albania. In this district, Laç has 21 families in blood feud, Lezha has less, Zejmeni, Shënkolli, Rubiku, Kacinari, and 15 other units. Then is Dibra with 89 families in the blood feud, but most of them are in Burrel, Bulqiza, and Klos. In the Kukes Region are 87 families in blood feuds, Durrës 86 and Tirana 68.

The capital and Durres have become homes for families from other regions. In Tirana most of the units are located in Paskuqani, Bathore.

The blood feud in Tirana has come due to the demographic movement of the population, from north and north-eastern areas, where many families also bring the drama of the blood. The families isolate themself at home because of the fear of the killer; Kukes has 3 confined families, 6 are in Lezha, 6 in Durrës, and even in Tirana are 5 families affected by blood feuds.

Blood feud reconciliations are very difficult and even these often turn to bloody. The main ways to avoid the risk is to leave outside Albania or other areas within the country.
