Birmingham MP: 'Families need to look at planned marriage issues'

Tributes have been paid to a couple from Birmingham who were murdered in Pakistan, in a suspected so-called honour killing.

Gul Wazir and his wife were reportedly shot, after a planned marriage between the couple's daughter and a man in Pakistan fell through.

Khalid Mahmood, a Birmingham MP, said the whole community has been saddened but needed to look at the issue of planned marriages.
