A tribal council in Pakistan has barred women from visiting public places for tourism and entertainment, terming it "unethical" and against the Islamic principles.

The all-male jirga (tribal council) of local elders of ultra-conservative Salarzai tehsil in Bajaur tribal district on Saturday announced that if the government did not implement the decision by Sunday, the jirga members would take it upon themselves to impose it.
