Bodies of couple found in well in Gadap Town

Muslim "honor" comes in many forms.  This time, a man and woman were thrown a well, possibly alive to save two families "honor".  The families of the couple banded together to kill them in a joint, mass, honor killing.  You can't make this stuff up, even the most lurid and horror movie can't come close to this depravity.

While the story line reads like a chapter out of Peyton Place, there's no excuse, ever to kill people over sex or infidelity.  But such is Islam, immutable and brittle.  Unable to change or modify itself since it's barbaric origins in the 7th century.
