The former in-laws of a woman killed in Pakistan in a suspected honour killing have been questioned by police.

Uzma Naurin, 30, was shot along with her husband Saif Rehman, 31, three weeks ago near the city of Gujrat.

The couple had been living in Glasgow, but were on holiday in Pakistan when their car was ambushed by gunmen.

Uzma's first husband had died a few years ago. Friends said she had then refused to marry his younger brother, which had caused family tensions.

It is one of a number of lines of inquiry being pursued by police in Pakistan who believe it was a targeted killing.

Mr Rehman was shot immediately by the ambushers while his sister who was also in the car was unharmed.

His wife was driven away and her body was discovered by the roadside a few hours later.

Police also plan to interview Uzma's father, Musafar Hussain, who lives in the US.

Mr Rehman had lived in Glasgow for six years and met his wife Uzma at a friend's wedding.

They were married in Glasgow in February.

The Foreign Office cannot become involved in the murder as Mr Rehman was a Pakistani national and his wife was a US citizen.
