The brother of Pakistan social media star Qandeel Baloch has been handed a life sentence for her murder.

A court in the eastern city of Multan found Muhammad Waseem guilty of the murder.

Six other people, including two of Baloch's other brothers, have been acquitted.

Waseem's lawyer said they would file an appeal against the verdict. 

In 2016, Waseem had admitted during a media conference organised by the police that he strangled his 26-year-old sister as he objected to her social media activities.
