London: Two teenaged sisters were reportedly shot dead after they were seen dancing in the rain in Pakistan.

Noor Basra, 15, and Noor Sheza, 16, were killed by five gunmen after their clip dancing around caused outrage in their ultra-conservative town.

According to the Mirror, their mother Noshehra was also shot. Police suspect that the murders were ordered by the sisters` step-brother to restore the family`s `honour`.
The sisters were filmed six months ago break-dancing after it started raining heavily.

The girls were seen running around with two younger children outside their house in their village in the deprived northern region of Gilgit.

The stepbrother Khutore and the gunmen are all thought to be on the run.
