Father stones her pregnant daughter in Lahore

  • A 25-year-old woman in Pakistan was murdered outside a court in Lahore and her killers included her relatives, brothers as well as her father. 

    "I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent, and I have no regret over it," the father told the authorities. 

    Farzana Parveen was ambushed as she reached the court to fight a complaint against her spouse. Media reports indicate that about 1,000 women die in the region each year in "honor killings" and the killers go unpunished for the most part.
