A Pakistani Christian woman was doused in petrol and set alight after she turned down a marriage proposal.

Sonia Bibi, 20, suffered burns to 50% of her body in the attack at the hands of her former partner Latif Ahmed, when she declined to marry him.

The incident took place in Multan and police have arrested 24-year-old Ahmed, according to reports.
A doctor in Multan’s Nishtar hospital confirmed that up to half of Bibi’s body was burned, but said she was out of danger.
