Pakistani police say the brother of killed model Qandeel Baloch has confessed to strangling her to death for “family honour” because she posted “shameful” pictures on Facebook.

Baloch, who had stirred controversy by posting pictures online of herself with a prominent Muslim cleric, was found dead on Saturday at her family home in the central city of Multan. Her brother, Waseem Azeem, was arrested on Sunday.

about it and in the past without any word getting out

3. Is that why the father & other family members reported it to authorities

 

& he & another family member is on the run. I understand that you hate everything & everyone that is Muslim but for fuck sake don't omit facts to try & support your bullshit.

13. Are there any statistics on how often this actually happens?

And whether a majority of Muslims in Pakistan approve of it?

8. This article is about the confession

 

Mine was about the murder.

Should all updates on a story really be under the OP that first makes mention of an event? Just curious how things are supposed to be done. Thank you.

10. In the first, his family said he'd done it; in this, he's said it

It makes little difference, and doesn't seem worth a new thread about it. No one in the first thread doubted that he had done it. In general, small updates to a story are better in the original thread.

12. What an odd comment

 

There are like a dozen different threads about the Trump-Pence logo, surely we can have more than one about this.

9. Most people would post the update within the OC

instead of start a whole new thread about it.
Awful story though.
