Saima Bibi's body 'showed signs of torture'

Police investigating a controversial alleged honour killing in Pakistan say it was not a case of suicide as claimed by the dead woman's family.

The case hit the headlines because of a statement by PM Yousuf Raza Gilani that the woman was electrocuted following a decision by a local village council.

Police say it was not "a simple suicide" as the post-mortem examination showed signs of torture on her body.

Orla Guerin reports.
