Islamabad (CNN)More than a dozen people have been arrested after a teenage girl was choked, injected with poison, tied to a van and then burned to death.
Police in Abbottabad in Pakistan's northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province said the death was a so-called honor killing ordered by a tribal council after the girl, 16-year-old Ambreen, allegedly helped a neighbor and her boyfriend elope.
"The order came after Ambreen's neighbor, Saima, had eloped with her boyfriend on the 22nd of April," police officer Khurram Rasheed said.
Rasheed said the girl's killing was ordered after a 15 member tribal council, or Jirga, gathered to investigate the elopement.
The couple that eloped has been tracked and is in a safe place, police said. They added that those arrested will be tried in an anti-terrorism court.
There are no words. This is absolutely awful, barbaric and evil in every sense.
Praying for her friends who "eloped" and pray that they do not suffer the same fate.
That's all I got for now bc this is just awful and I don't want to think about it longer than absolutely necessary.
And the west has no problem letting these animals in.

The definition of Honor Killings is: Honor killing or shame killing are the "homicide" of a member of a family by other members, due to the perpetrators' belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion. Usually for reasons such as refusing to enter an arranged marriage, being in a relationship that is disapproved of by their family, having sex outside marriage, becoming the victim of rape, dressing in ways which are deemed inappropriate, engaging in non-heterosexual relations or renouncing a faith. This is a discrimination against human nature, how could you murder your mother,father brother or sister because they had been raped ? or enjoyed a quickie on the side? This is a medieval practice, devoid of reason and condemned by society in today's world....

This is truly awful.. but how can you condem an entire religion for the actions of a few.
These type of people are mo different from those inbred bumpkin people you get in the usa.
If anyone read the actual article it clearly states they have made arrests and are trying these people for their crimes.. Why is this not being taken into account?
I'm sure a lot of followers of Islam will be horrified by this..
