A woman and her lover were murdered after they were discovered having sex in a field near a village in southern Pakistan

Associated Press:

Three men shot the couple after spotting them in an "objectionable condition" before dawn on Sunday near Mewa Khan Sunhari village, about 340 miles northeast of Karachi.

The man, 33, and the woman, 25, were both married. "This is a case of karo-kari," a police spokesman said, referring to the custom of killing adulterers.

Many men in Pakistan consider it an insult to family honour if female relatives have relations with men outside marriage.

"consider it an insult"

OK, well, maybe it is; in any case, I suppose it cannot be said to benefit "family honour".

But what should be done about it? This is where many muslim societies and believers go about as wrong as it is possible to go.

But hey, welcome to Europe -- no problemo.
