A revenge killing in Pakistan's eastern Punjab province has left 11 members of the same family dead, police said.

Four women and three children were among those killed in Vehari, 60 miles east of Multan.

There were few details about the killing, but police said it appeared to be in retaliation for a killing several days earlier in the same village.

In rural Pakistan feuds are often settled by retaliatory killings that include women and children.

An investigation has been ordered, but police said so far they had not made any arrests.
