Police say a Pakistani social media celebrity and model was killed by her brother in what they deem as an "honor killing."
Qandeel Baloch first rose to fame in 2014 and is often called "Pakistan's Kim Kardashian." She identified as a "modern day feminist" and was known for posting sometimes racy photos and videos that caused anger in the predominately Muslim country.
In a Facebook post earlier this month, Baloch said she was trying to change the "typical orthodox mindset."
