A transgender woman in Pakistan has died after being set afire by four men when she resisted sexual assault. The men had taken the woman to an isolated area in the city of Sahiwal, in the eastern part of the nation last Thursday, The Times of India reports. She fought back when they tried to assault her, and then they set her on fire. She suffered burns on 80 percent of her body and died while being transported to a hospital. Local media misgendered her, but Trans Action Pakistan confirmed her female identity to the U.K.’s Pink News. Her name has not been released, and no one has claimed her body, according to the group. The attackers have apparently been identified, but it’s unclear if they are in police custody.
