Six months after a jirga in northern Pakistan called for action against a group of men and women purportedly seen dancing in a video, three brothers of one of the men have been killed by the women's tribe, a provincial minister has said.
Three brothers of Mohammad Afzal, who was at the centre of a controversy over the video last June, were shot dead and another man was injured in an attack in Kohistan district on Thursday.
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain said the three slain men were buried after an autopsy was performed on their bodies. He said 18 people had been booked in an FIR and police had been directed to arrest the killers at any cost.
The emergence of the video showing men and women clapping and dancing at a wedding in Kohistancaused a controversy last year. Mohammad Afzal, a member of the Salakhel tribe, alleged that the four women shown in the video had been killed. This sparked an enmity between the Salakhel and Suramkhel tribes.
