Newlyweds Decapitated

Young newlyweds in northeastern Pakistan were killed by the bride’s family, the latest victims of honor killings in the country, Pakistan police said Saturday.

Sajjad Ahmed, 26, and Muawia Bibi, 18, were married by a Pakistani court June 18 — but apparently against the wishes of the Bibi family, CNN reported, citing Punjab police official Mohammad Ahsanullah.

On Thursday, the bride’s father and uncles lured the couple back to the village of Satrah in Punjab province, where Ahsanullah said the pair were tied up and then decapitated.
According to the UN, about 5,000 women are murdered in honor killings every year.
