Objectivity 4.3 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

A Pakistani man sentenced to life in prison in 2019 for strangling his sister, a model on social media, was acquitted of murder after his parents pardoned him under Islamic law. The mother told reporters that her slain daughter cannot come back “but I am thankful to the court, which ordered the release of my son at our request.” According to AP News, nearly 1,000 Pakistani women are murdered by close relatives annually in so-called honor killings.
