Shafilea Ahmed death: Sister 'wrote of killing'

The trial of a mother and father who are accused of murdering their 17-year-old daughter, Shafilea Ahmed, has been told how her younger sister wrote letters to a friend about how her parents had killed her.

Chester Crown Court heard that Mevish Ahmed, 21, had written the letters in 2008, five years after her sister disappeared, but she told the court they were "free writing" and "fiction".

Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed deny the murder of their daughter at their Warrington home in September 2003. Judith Moritz reports.
