A 2-year-old boy was shot and killed by a wealthy Muslim landowner in Nazimabad, Pakistan, who was angry at his father for refusing to work at his home without pay.
Fides News Agency reported on Wednesday that the alleged murderer, Haji Rasheed, refused to pay Christian worker Samsoon Masih the money he owed him for painting his house. A dispute then arose in which Masih said he would no longer work in Rasheed's house.
