Pakistan: teenage girls shot dead by relatives over online footage | Pakistan | The Guardian
Two female teenagers in Pakistan have been murdered by family members after a video emerged online of them associating with a man. The pair, said to be aged 16 and 18, were shot dead by male relatives in their remote village in North Waziristan this week after footage was posted online of them in the company of a young man in a secluded area. After they were shot, the pair were then buried in the village by their family members. Local police confirmed they had arrested the father of one of the victims, and the brother of the other victim, in connection with arranging and carrying out the murders, and they were now being held in custody. The police are searching for two other family members believed to have been involved in the killings. The footage of the women, which is less than a minute long, was said to have been filmed last year but only appeared on social media a few weeks ago. The police said they were still searching for a third young woman who also featured in the video to ensure she did not suffer the same fate.
