    Six women are killed every hour by people they know, a global report has found.

    The United Nations study found that, in the last year about 87,000 women were killed with that number indicating an overall increase compared to previous years.

    More than half (58 per cent) - 50,000 women - were killed by their partners or family members.

    That amounts to 137 women every day being killed by their partner or their own family.
