Man arrested for honour killings of cousins in North Waziristan

Peshawar (HRNW)  Pakistan police have arrested a man over the so-called honour killings of his two cousins who appeared in a viral video being kissed by someone, police said Thursday.

The two women were shot dead last week in a northwestern district near the Afghan border, where women are subjected to strict tribal codes that limit their movement outside of the home.

Muhammad Aslam, the 26-year-old first cousin of the victims, is accused of carrying out the murders.

“We have arrested the main suspect and trying to recover the pistol he used”, said Mohammad Nawaz Khan, who is investigating the case.

Another senior officer confirmed the arrest.
