Theatre Mode

Four women and two men have been sentenced to death in northern Pakistan for allegedly singing and dancing together at a wedding.The decree was issued after a mobile phone video emerged of the six at a recent reception in the remote Gada village in the mountainous district of Kohistan, 176 kilometers north of the capital Islamabad. The video appears to show the six celebrating the wedding in defiance of strict tribal customs that separate men and women at weddings.
