Canada: Muslima convicted in honor killing of three girls gets escorted absence from prison for humanitarian reasons


The woman convicted for her role in the so-called honour killings of her three daughters and her husband's first wife a decade ago has been granted an escorted temporary absence from prison to visit her mother's grave. The Parole Board of Canada says it approved Tooba Yahya's request "for humanitarian and compassionate reasons," because her risk of recidivism is low and because the security risk that the absence poses is "manageable."
