Honour killings: BBC meets woman who survived murder attempt

The murder of a young pregnant woman in Pakistan by her family earlier this year, pushed the issue of "honour killings" into the spotlight.

She was beaten to death for marrying without their consent - just one of 900 such killings last year.

Human rights groups say convictions are rare and stories of survival are almost non-existent.

But the BBC's Amber Shamsi, managed to find one young woman who lived to tell her story.
