WARNING--EDIT CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES
A husband mourns for his new bride in Pakistan.
Police said his 25-year-old wife was stoned to death in a so-called "honor" killing outside a court in Lahore.
Why? Police said it was because she married the man she loved -- an action that many Pakistani families believe bring dishonor on the family.
She was supposed to marry her cousin.
Around a dozen men, including the woman's father, two brothers and former fiance, attacked her with bricks.
She suffered severe head injuries and died at the hospital.
Rights groups estimate that around 1,000 women die every year in honor killings.
