Gunmen shoot dead Pakistan family
Gunmen have shot dead seven members of the same family in the Pakistani province of Punjab, police say.

The attackers forced their way into the family home about 40km (25 miles) west of Lahore and shot the victims while they slept, an officer told the BBC.

Those killed include the head of the family, his mother, a daughter-in-law and four young grandchildren.

Police suspect revenge as a motive. It is the third armed attack on a family in Punjab in the last six weeks.
