Pregnant woman stoned to death in Pakistan buried

Posted:
The husband of a pregnant woman stoned to death in Pakistan says her family had to bury her before dawn over the gruesome injuries she suffered.
   Mohammad Iqbal says his family buried 25-year-old Farzana Parveen around 2 a.m. Wednesday in Pakistan's eastern Punjab province.
   The burial came as police launched raids over the woman's killing Tuesday by dozens in a mob in front of a courthouse in the city of Lahore.
   He says his wife's father and brothers hit her in the head with bricks, killing her.
   Iqbal says his father-in-law had filed a criminal complaint against him, accusing him of abducting his daughter. Authorities say the father described the attack as an "honor killing."
