Kohistan: 4 cousins killed over ‘family honor’
PESHAWAR – Police in northwestern Pakistan say four members of a tribe were shot dead over "family honor" on the orders of a village council.

The quartet, which included two women and two men, were murdered over suspicions of illicit relations, the DawnNews reported on Saturday citing local police.

District police chief Raja Abdus Saboor said Sunday that police have arrested one man involved in the killings and are searching for others. The four victims were 18 to 21 years old. Their bodies were found on Friday near their remote mountain village.

Their bodies have been transferred to Dasu Rural Health Centre for post-mortem examination.

More than 1,000 women are killed every year in the South Asian country over suspicions they engaged in relationships that went against the family's wishes. The so-called "honor killings" are often carried out by the women's own relatives.
