Pakistan's National Assembly has unanimously adopted a new law which will ensure that people who commit so-called honor killings, no longer can escape punishment.

The law states that persons who have committed murder, could be given imprisonment for life even if relatives of the victim forgive the perpetrator.

The National Assembly on Thursday also approved a law that tightens penalties for certain types of rape. A person who rapes a minor or a disabled person will be punished by imprisonment for life or death.

Pakistani women have long fought for their rights in a country where so-called honor killings take hundreds of lives each year.

When it comes to rape hardly anyone is found guilty. One important reason is the courts' emphasis on circumstantial evidence and the lack of forensic tests.

In the new law it states that the government is authorized to take DNA samples in connection with rape cases.
