A pregnant Pakistani singer was gunned down Tuesday at close range by a disgruntled attendee at a wedding ceremony, local police revealed Thursday.
Samina Samoon, a 24-year-old artist who was six months pregnant, was shot at point-blank range while singing at a performance in southern Sindh province. A drunken guest reportedly decided to end her life after she initially refused to stand and dance while she sang.
