Pakistani police arrested two men in a remote southern village and accused them of killing two young women for allegedly having sex outside marriage, police officials said Saturday. The suspects, who are uncles of the women, were caught after authorities were tipped off by the girls' parents about the slayings in southern Sindh province, Ajmal Magsi, an area police chief said. The two women, aged 18 and 20, were first cousins and unmarried, Magsi said. He said they were allegedly snatched from their home near Sanghar district and taken to a field where they were hacked to death. Sanghar is about 250 kilometers (150 miles) south of Karachi, the provincial capital.
