Two Teenage Girls Shot In Honour Killing In PakistanGuardian Life”

"We first heard about the incident through social media and chose to confirm it", he advised that the Thomson Reuters Foundation by telephone from North Waziristan.

Revealing the identity of the men, it was discovered that one man is the father of one of the victims and the second man is the brother of the other young girl.

The tribal areas in North and South Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan, are known for the strict "honour code" imposed on women, whose movements are heavily restricted and who are often not allowed out of the house unaccompanied.

"Both men have confessed to killing them", police official Mohammad Nawaz told a Pakistani television channel on Sunday.

The killing occurred after a short mobile video of them with a young man surfaced on social media, police said. He said police were collecting information about the third girl and the man seen in the video.

The video was shot over a year ago but somehow re-shared on social media a few weeks ago before the killings took place on Thursday.

The third woman's life is not believed to be in danger, Khan said. He revealed that the families of the two victims reportedly moved to their native village Shakotai in South Waziristan after the incident for the burial of the bodies.

Police have been sent to the remote area to investigate the case.

"Before 2018, this kind of murder was not considered a crime in the tribal area, neither was it reported", she explained.

"At the moment, our topmost priority is to secure the life of the third girl and the man before taking any action", the officer said.

So called "honour" murders continue to be usual in Pakistan's tribal locations, primarily versus ladies that are thought to have actually brought embarassment on a household, and also protestors claim approximately 1,000 such murders are still executed each year.

An honor killing is such a brutal activity to its extent and it mainly performed when someone kills their own family member because they have been regarded to bring dishonor to the family name.

Human rights experts say enforcement of justice is often lax in cases involving violence against women, with proceedings at times being drawn out while accused killers were freed on bail and cases faded away.
