Cops crash ‘wedding’
PESHAWAR, Pakistan – Police in northwestern Pakistan broke up an apparent wedding between a businessman and his transgender bride, saying yesterday they could face seven years in prison for violating laws against same-sex marriage in the devoutly Muslim country.
The pair denied the charges, saying the celebration was a birthday party, not a wedding.
Authorities also detained 43 guests, who were dancing to drums when authorities made the raid on Monday in Peshawar city, police official Javed Khan said. (AP)
