    LAHORE, Pakistan: An enraged Muslim mob beat a Christian couple to death in Pakistan and burnt their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) for allegedly desecrating a Koran, police said. The incident took place in the town of Kot Radha Kishan, some 60 kilometers (40 miles) southwest of Lahore, and is the latest example of mob violence against minorities accused of blasphemy. The victims were only identified by their first names, Shama and Shehzad, and were a married couple.
