Seven women murdered in Land Dispute

Seven women are among the eight murdered in Layyah, in a land dispute between two brothers. According to police, rising tensions between Shah Ali and his brother over 15 acres of land cumulated in violence when two of his nephews killed their grandmother, six aunts and an uncle. Both susupects fled from the scene and so far no arrests have been made.

I hate to be cynical, but I don't expect any justice for these women (and man) anytime soon. After all, human rights (especially rights for women and children) are clearly not a priority in Pakistan.
