Three women murdered for ‘honour’

Three young women in one family were shot dead by male relatives who suspected them of having “illicit relations” with other men, police said Wednesday. The women, aged 22, 28 and 29, all lived in the same house in the city of Faisalabad. “The men suspected that the three women had illicit relations with other men and shot them in the chest and face and fled after the murders,” police investigator Mohammad Ayub told AFP. Police have launched a manhunt, he said, added that it appeared to a case of “honour killings”.

Officials at the local police station confirmed the account.

Last week a teenage girl in the country’s north-west was strangled and her body set ablaze after a village council ruled she must die for helping a friend to elope, sparking anger from rights activists. Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending family “honour”.
