LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) A Pakistani man suspected of killing his 18-year-old daughter in Italy after she reportedly refused an arranged marriage has been arrested and is being questioned by investigators in the capital, Islamabad, a senior police official said Friday.

Shabbir Abbas was arrested in his village in the eastern Punjab province following a tip-off by Italian authorities and local police, the official Anwar Saeed Kingra told The Associated Press.

His daughter, Saman Abbas, was last seen in late April by neighbors in the vicinity of her familys home in the farm town of Novellara, near the city of Reggio Emilia.
