husbandPakistan - A man’s throat was slit by relatives of his wife who disapproved of their marriage in the latest “honor killing” to hit Pakistan, police said Saturday.

Hundreds of women are murdered by relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending what is seen as family honor, but it is rare for victim to be a man.

The murder happened at a marketplace in the Punjab city of Burewala on Friday, when Muhammad Irshad, 43, was attacked by his father-in-law and two brothers in-law, police said.

“The assailants were armed with knives and hatchets and after inflicting several wounds on Irshad’s body they slit his throat,” district police chief Ghazi Salahuddin told AFP.   Source
