12-Year-Old Pakistani Girl Killed In Latest ‘Honor Killing’

A 12-year-old Pakistani girl was killed by her family after she eloped with a boy, villagers and officials in the northwestern tribal district of Khyber say.

Local official Niaz Muhammad told RFE/RL on June 30 that the girl, named Naghma, left her house in Kadey village on June 23 before being stopped by security officials.

Muhammad said Naghma was handed over to her family, which promised she wouldn’t be harmed.

    Well now, that’ll teach the little brat a lesson. She won’t do that again. Killing one’s own children is hard to fathom.

    There is nothing more meaningless than the promise of a Mohammedan.

    Wow this family has so much honour now.

  • Nuke Pakistan. We don’t need it for anything.
