A Pakistani teenager was been burnt alive by her own mother on Wednesday after marrying a man of her own choice, police said, the latest in a string of so-called "honour killings" in the country.
Zeenat Bibi, 16, was set on fire by her mother Perveen Bibi in the eastern city of Lahore a little more than a week after the wedding.
"Perveen Bibi killed her daughter Zeenat Bibi by burning her alive around 9:00 am on Wednesday," Haidar Ashraf, a senior police official told AFP, adding the teen had married a man named Hasan on May 29.
Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending what is seen as a family honour.
