Christian Couple Buried Alive In ‘Brutal And Barbaric’ Mob Attack

A lawyer for the state of Punjab, Pakistan has described the murder of a Christian couple by a mob of at least 500 to 600 as “brutal and barbaric.” The post-mortem report on their twin deaths (first revealed in the Supreme Court on Dec. 15) showed that both husband and wife were still alive when they were thrown into the brick kiln where they both worked, and that they burned to death.
