Someone recently explained to me how street cleaners (typically old beggars) have been used as a training aid there. Novice snipers would shoot them from rooftops to get a feel for the job.

let me tell you about a funny little place called the islamic middle east...

"Ms. Mukhtar was raped on the orders of the village council in Meerwala, a dusty farming village in Punjab Province in a case that jolted the country and ignited international outrage."

"The rape was said to be a punishment for her younger brother’s supposed illicit relations with a woman from a rival tribe, the Mastoi. Later police investigations found that the boy had been molested by three Mastoi tribesmen and that the accusation against him had been a cover-up."
