British couple gunned down in Pakistan in suspected honour killing after calling off marriage
A British couple who flew to Pakistan to settle a row over their daughter's arranged marriage have been shot dead in a suspected 'honour killing'.
The spurned groom is thought to have gunned down Gul Wazir and wife Bagum alongside their son who had also travelled to the remote Nowshera province, one of the areas devastated by the flooding in the country.
The son survived the attack and is in a stable condition in hospital. It was reported the gunman was a nephew of the couple, and was named locally as Rehman Wazir.
