Our friends, the Pakistanis

Relatives of a young Pakistani woman are suspected of electrocuting her for marrying a man against their wishes, police said.

Police official Afzal Lodhi said authorities arrested 21-year-old Saima Bibi's father and three of her uncles in a small village in eastern Pakistan.

He said police a day earlier recovered Bibi's body, which had burn marks indicating she had been electrocuted.

Lodhi said the woman eloped with another villager a month ago and got married in the southern port city of Karachi. He said the woman's relatives lured her back by falsely promising they would agree to her marriage.

We are spending billions of dollars and risking thousands of American lives to protect the lifestyle of these villagers.
