"HONOR" KILLING IN JORDAN

Jordanian kills sister over mobile phone photo
Keep in mind a few things -

  1. Jordan is supposedly a 'moderate' Arab state
  2. The King has tried to implement a law several times 'between Parliament sessions' making very stiff penalties for 'honor killings'. Each time the elected Parliament of Jordan has struck down the law.
  3. The last time a law mandating stiffer penalties for honor killing was rejected on Islamic grounds
  4. The penalty to the brother, husband or father is often a few months in jail if that.

From AFP -

  • AMMAN - A Jordanian man shot dead his divorced sister after seeing her photo on his friend's camera-equipped mobile phone in the latest "honour" killing in the kingdom, hospital officials said on Monday.
  • The unidentified man shot the 31-year-old mother twice in the head Sunday night and then turned himself in to police saying he committed the murder to "cleanse his family's honour."
  • The incident is the 5th example of a so-called honour killing in Jordan this year. Those found guilty usually face sentences of a maximum of one year in jail under Jordanian law.
  • Last month, a man stabbed his sister to death after finding out she had agreed an unofficial marriage with a man who subsequently disappeared...

UPDATE AFGHANISTAN -

Afghan woman killed by father for 'adultery' AP -

  • An Afghan man killed his daughter for allegedly committing adultery, officials said on Sunday, but denied reports that she was stoned to death. Two officials said Mohammed Aslam killed his daughter Amina on Thursday in a remote village of Badakhshan province called Gazan, about 310 kilometres north-west of Kabul.
  • Media reports said the woman was stoned by villagers who caught her in the home of a man other than her husband - a punishment allowed under Islamic law and more commonly reported under the former Taliban government.
  • But police said the reports were mistaken and that Aslam carried out the killing alone.
    "With the fundamentalists and the hardline mullahs who are in that area, these things are not impossible," said Shah Jahan Noori, the provincial police chief, told The Associated Press. "But I know that in this case she was not stoned."
