Police say 'honour killing victim' was strangled

Police in Pakistan have confirmed that a 28-year-old woman from Bradford found dead in the Punjab at the end of July was strangled.

Samia Shahid's father initially said she had died of a heart attack during a visit to see relatives but her husband claims she was the victim of a so-called "honour killing" because her family disapproved of their marriage.
