Anger and fear in Pakistan 'blasphemy' murder village

The murder of a Christian couple on Tuesday for allegedly desecrating the Koran has highlighted the sensitivity of the issue in Pakistan.

Critics argue that blasphemy laws are often misused to settle personal scores and unfairly target minorities.

The father of the murdered woman told the BBC she had really been killed over a wages dispute.

Shahzeb Jillani travelled to the remote village in Punjab province where the murders took place.
