Death for singing? Pakistan search for condemned wedding women

Pakistan's Supreme Court has sent a fact-finding mission to a remote northern area to establish if four local women have been killed.

Reports suggest they were sentenced to death by a local tribal council or Jirga, because of video footage that appeared to show them singing and dancing at a wedding, in the presence of men.

Local officials told the court they had been unable to contact the women, despite several attempts, as the BBC's Orla Guerin reports.
