Pakistani Woman Murdered by Family for Marrying Out of Love

A Pakistani woman who married a man she loved was punished on Tuesday by her family, who beat her to death as a crowd watched outside a courthouse, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

The 25-year-old pregnant woman's father, brother and spurned fiancé were among about a dozen male relatives who used bricks and clubs in the killing of Farzana Parveen for disobeying her family's wishes.
