20yr old Pakistani woman gang raped, killed and hanged from a tree

A 20 year old Pakistani lady identified as Muzammil Bibi was found strangled and hung on a tree after resisting rape attempts by three men. Police in Pakistan say the young lady was accosted by the men in a field at the densely populated Punjab province and when she tried to resist being raped, they beat her up, raped her, strangled her and afterwards hanged her on a tree, local media reports.

Speaking on the incident, Pakistani Senior Police Officer, Sadaqat Ali Chohan expressed shock, saying this was the first time such a thing would happen in Pakistan.
"This is the first time in my 22 years of service in the police that I have seen such a case where a girl was raped in this way and found hanging from a tree. We have heard of such cases in India but never in Pakistan. The girl's clothes were torn. We took her down and moved her to hospital. Her body had signs of resistance. We have arrested three individuals who have confessed o the crime" he said
Police said her parents spent all night looking for her and found her body hanging the next morning. Only last month, a similar case was recorded in India where two female cousins were gang raped and later hanged from a tree.

Dear LIB readers: Is it okay for a woman to invite her ex-lovers to her wedding?

Question from a male LIB reader...
A girl who was a bit promiscuous back in university days invited some of her ex-lovers to her wedding who I am aware of. She's doing good for herself in Chevron and her husband works in Mobil. I saw at least four guys she'd been with in the past at the wedding (including myself) and I wondered why she would do that.
I know I wouldn't want that, allow my fiancee's ex-lovers to attend my wedding but I see women think differently about matters like this. It will be nice to know what people think

'On-air-personalities, you have finally killed radio' - Etcetera writes

Hmmm, this Etcetera and some of his controversial topics. I can't shout! Lol. Now he's talking about some OAPs with fake accents who do nothing but glorify celebs & chase stardom. His article below
Radio is in a period where only the ‘blings’ and ‘blingers’ are getting all the attention. This must be the worst time to listen to radio in Nigeria. Consider some of the on-air-personalities, all they do is talk about what their favourite celebrities are wearing.
How easily manipulated and distracted can they be? A fake accent has never been more glorified than today.
With on-air-personalities chasing celebrity status themselves, radio listeners are never going to get any unbiased assessment of issues. Continue...

'Dancers & singers are better in bed than actors' Jennifer Lopez says

Jennifer Lopez has dated a few men in the entertainment industry, including dancers, a music exec, singers and actors. And of all the men she's been with, she says dancers are better lovers than actors.

During an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live yesterday while promoting her new album A.K.A, Jennifer was amazingly truthful when the host asked her who were better in bed, dancers, singers or actors.
'Can I leave? Am I trapped in here? I’m gonna start having anxiety.' Jennifer joked. Then she opened up "I have to say that in my limited experience, I would have to say anybody involved in music. So I would say singers and dancers. I forgot my card. D***t. I could've pleaded the fifth.'
"I've dated two dancers. One, I had a brief marriage with, Cris Judd, who is an amazing person and whom I love, and then Beau (Casper Smart), we just broke up, who I love as well. He's a good friend.
Jennifer Lopez dated Ben Affleck for almost two years... from 2002 till January 2004.

Italy to repatriate 700 Nigerian prisoners

The Italian Ambassador to Nigeria, Fulvius Rusticu, yesterday June 19th revealed plans by the Italian Government to repatriate 700 Nigerian prisoners currently serving jail time in Italian prisons. While  speaking with pressmen in Abuja, Fulvius said Italian and Nigerian Govt officials were in talks for a Transfer Agreement (PTA) and would meet first week in July in Rome to conclude negotiations. He said bringing the prisoner closer home is in the interest of the prisoners 
"Each country is responsible for its prisons; the logic in signing a PTA is that we think that it is better for Nigerians and even Italians to serve their terms at home. Already to be in prisons is not a nice experience, being abroad is even worse, so given the prisoner the chance to return home is in their own interest. It is very rare for a prisoner to want to stay in a foreign country, we have cases of Italians serving in prisons abroad and they look forward, and are happy to return home,” he said
No fewer than 15,316 Nigerians are in various prisons abroad with the largest No. of 752 in the UK.

Jay Z and Beyonce's tour not struggling, over $86m in tickets sold

There were reports last week that the ticket sales for Beyonce and Jay Z's 'On The Run' tour set to begin in Miami on June 25 and wrap in San Francisco Aug. 5 were much lower than expected as people were no longer interested in watching the power couple in concert after the elevator fight...but it seems that report isn't true...

From Billboard
Sources close to the Live Nation-produced tour tell Billboard that, as of June 17, the tour has racked up about $86 million in ticket sales and is on a pace to gross close to $100 million from just 19 shows. The source says attendance is on a pace to top 850,000 tickets sold, and a Live Nation rep confirmed to Billboard last night that the tour is indeed nearing that threshold. That’s a whopping nightly take of $5.2 million, and an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show -- well more than two sold-out arena shows would generate in any given market. Numerous shows are sold out, and Live Nation cites "unprecedented" VIP and platinum ticket sales.

Dear LIB women: what are the top 5 reasons why women cheat?

More and more women are cheating on their partners these days...way more now than it used to be. In fact some men think women now cheat more than they do (I don't think so tho :-))

Anyway, why do you think women cheat? What are the top 5 reasons? See some options below...
1. As payback to their men for cheating on them?
2. Lack of good sex from their men?
3. Because they feel emotionally neglected by their men?
4. To feel wanted, desired and appreciated?
5. Because they can?

What is it?
