Summary: 

Two years since a Christian couple were burnt to death in Pakistan, there still haven't been any convictions for their murders. Shama Masih, 24 and five months pregnant at the time, and her husband Shahzad Masih, 26, were beaten by an angry mob and thrown alive into a burning brick kiln in Kot Radha Kishan in Punjab province in November 2014. It's after allegations they blasphemed against the Quran whilst working as labourers at the site.
