Qandeel Baloch's death renews focus on 'honor killings' Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN)Perpetrators of so-called "honor killings" can no longer walk free if pardoned by the victim's family, after a new law was passed n Pakistan. The bill, which failed to gain traction when it was first introduced in March, passed unanimously in both houses of parliament on Thursday. "No murderer will be able to walk away free even if his parents or family members forgive him for killing his sister, wife or mother in the name of 'honor.'" This milestone comes three months after a social media star and "modern day feminist" was killed by her brother for "dishonoring" the family.
