Christian family murdered

Okara Christian cemetery, a scene of earlier trouble

A husband and wife, sister in law and two children were murdered in Okara, Punjab province, about 70 km south west of Lahore.  The murders happened on the night of the 22nd May.  Police are investigating, but no arrests so far.  The manner of the families death - they had their throats slit - strongly suggests that this was martyrdom at the hands of Muslim extremists.  Source

Okara has been the scene of several incidents in the past, notably an attempt in June 2009 by Muslim authorities to demolish the Christian cemetery and turn it into recreational park land.  Source - about a third of the way down
