Police: Pakistani kills sister, niece in 'honor killing'

Pakistani police say a man shot dead his sister and her daughter in a so-called "honor killing" in the eastern city of Lahore.

Police official Abid Memon says the man's sister angered him by marrying again after being divorced three times. When she went to his home to retrieve her daughter, who was living with him, he killed both women.

The official says the suspect, identified as Mohammad Shahzad, feared his sister would be a bad influence on her daughter. He says Shahzad is currently at large.

Nearly 1,000 women are killed in Pakistan each year for violating conservative norms on love, marriage and public behavior.
