Christian Couple Burned Alive by Mob in Pakistan After Alleged Desecration of Koran
CNN reports that a Christian couple in Pakistan were surrounded by a mob, beaten, and then thrown alive into a nearby kiln to die. The mob formed after rumors spread that the couple had desecrated the Koran, which led to announcements through mosque loudspeakers. No evidence has been found that a Koran was desecrated. Police have arrested 40 in connection with the murders.
