The Myanmar Times - - World -

A man killed his two sis­ters on the eve of their wed­dings in Pak­istan’s cen­tral Pun­jab prov­ince, in the latest case of so-called “hon­our killings” in the coun­try. Kosar and Gulzar Bibi, aged 22 and 28, were shot dead by 35-yearold brother Nasir Hus­sain as they pre­pared to marry men they had cho­sen them­selves, se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer Me­har Riaz said. Mr Hus­sain re­port­edly ob­jected to the love matches and had wanted the women to marry some­one within the ex­tended fam­ily.
