Man Kills Wife, Children, 6 Others After Seeing Photo Of His Wife

Muhammad Ajmal killed his wife, their two children, and six of her family members in Lahore, Pakistan, after he saw a picture of her with another man. He believed that his wife was cheating on him and that it would bring shame to his reputation. The murders were confirmed as a mass honor killing. Ajmal's father and brother are suspected of participating in the killings. Although Pakistan outlawed honor killings in 2016, murderers can walk free if family members offer a pardon. Thousands of individuals become victims of honor killings in Pakistan every year, mostly women and girls accused of violating cultural or religious morals.
