Here we go, another "honor" killing. And they did so because they thought a 16 year old girl damaged the village's reputation. Well, stuff like this should move them right to the top of tourist destinations then. :rolleyes: At least many were arrested.... so now they should receive their punishment, right?

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) Pakistani police on Thursday arrested 15 members of a tribal council accused of ordering the burning alive of a young girl for helping a couple to elope in a so-called "honor killing", police said.

The 16-year-old girl was set on fire last week in the town of Donga Gali, about 50 km (30 miles) northeast of the capital, Islamabad, on the orders of the council, said district police chief Saeed Wazir.

Police said the honor killing was ordered as punishment for what the council deemed irreparable damage to the village's reputation. The couple appeared to have escaped.

The girl's mother and brother were also arrested, Wazir said, as they were present during the meeting and allegedly agreed to the sentence.

........

More than 500 men and women were killed in honor killings in Pakistan last year, according to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. Many of those crimes are carried out by relatives who say the victims have brought shame on the family.

Few cases go to court, but among those that do, attackers are often forgiven under a clause of law rooted in Islamic law. Legislation is currently pending at Pakistan's parliament to close the loophole, which many say encourages such attacks.

And Feminists are too worried about protesting healthy body image by calling for bans of 'attractive women' (http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/jul/01/protein-world-beach-body-ready-ads-asa) in advertising to address things like this.

Breaks my heart in half.

Apparently a dose of "Lt. Calley's Urban Renewal Ointment" is in order for a certain village in Pakistan.
