A Pakistani court has sentenced two men to death for raping a woman, in front of her children, a crime that sparked shock in the country and protests.
The verdict was applauded, as convictions for rape are rare in Pakistan’s complex criminal justice system.
A court specialized in terrorism cases issued the decision in the eastern city of Lahore after a trial that lasted more than six months.
“Geo News” TV reported that it is the first time that the death penalty has been passed in a case of gang rape.
