The brother of a Pakistani social media star spoke out about the murder of his sister — which he, himself, allegedly committed.
Muhammad Waseem expressed pride over the fact that he reportedly strangled his sister, 26-year-old Qandeel Baloch, to death on July 15 — saying that he did it because she wouldn’t stop posting provocative photos and videos online.
Baloch became a controversial figure in the conservative Muslim country of Pakistan, often being referred to as the Pakistani Kim Kardashian. Her death prompted many to call for an end to "honor" killings.
"Yes of course, I strangled her," Waseem confirmed at a police-organized press conference on July 17, Daily Mail reported.

"She was on the ground floor while our parents were asleep on the roof top," he said. "It was around 10:45 p.m. when I gave her a tablet ... and then killed her."
"I am not embarrassed at all over what I did," Waseem added. "Whatever was the case, [Baloch's behavior] was completely intolerable."
Baloch was an outspoken feminist who often expressed her views on social media about the treatment of women in Pakistan.
