Shafilea Ahmed trial: Mevish Ahmed denies intimidating witnesses

The younger sister of teenager Shafilea Ahmed has denied that she made silent phone calls to intimidate a potential witness at the trial of her parents.

Under cross examination, Mevish Ahmed said the phone calls, which were made to a friend last week, were all a joke.

The body of 17-year-old Shafilea was found on a riverbank near Kendal in 2004. Her parents - Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed - both deny her murder.
