Lahore, Pakistan, Jun 16, 2016 / 11:33 am
A teenage Christian girl in Pakistan was reportedly killed by her own brother this week in a so-called "honor killing" over her plans to marry.
The young woman, Anum Ishaq Masih, was in her late teens. She had insisted that she would marry a Christian neighbor, but the family did not agree to the marriage.
Saqib Ishaq Masih, 23, allegedly smashed his sister's head with a log while she slept early Sunday morning, authorities told Agence France Presse. The killing took place in the city of Sialkot, south-west of Lahore.
The family is Christian. The girl's father filed a case against her brother, who has been arrested and charged with murder.
