Honor Killing In Egypt
From this posting over at Tea and Politics:
A terrible honor killing in Egypt
I have not found this in English so I translate what I have found: Un padre encierra a su hija un año y la tortura hasta la muerte en Egipto – Antena 3 NoticiasA father shut his 23-year-old daughter down in an obscure room during one and a half year, offering her little food and drink, and tortured her to death in a clear case of honor crime, according to Egyptian daily ‘Al Ahram’.The family is as responsible for this murder as the murderer himself.
The 55-year-old man had heard rumours about his daughter’s behaviour: she had a relationship with a boy who she was supposedly to marry with.
Her father’s relatives, from Egyptian city of Miniya, south Egypt, were offended by the bad fame she had and menaced the father not to let him enter the city if he didn’t kill her daughter. The man, who worked as a porter in a building of Old Cairo, told the police that he chained and tortured his daughter to kill her and send her corpse to his family in Miniya to beg for their forgiveness. The murderer’s neighbours told the police about the crime before he could flee with the corpse.
