Pakistan acid attack parents 'feared dishonour'

“A couple arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of killing their 15-year-old daughter with acid say they carried out the attack because she looked at a boy. The girl's father told the BBC that they feared she would bring dishonour on their family. Her mothe r said it was her "destiny" to die that way.”

This kind of thinking goes so far out into the weeds that even the snakes are running for their lives.
