Outrage Grows During a Summer of Honor Killings
Her screams tore through the streets, a young woman running from her family home on a hot summer evening. Behind her, her father gave chase, a cement brick gripped in one hand. Neighbors watched as he overtook her, stood in shock as his arm rose, then fell, crashing the brick against her skull until, covered in her own blood, she collapsed. She died on the sidewalk at his feet.
In a video one
neighbor filmed of the incident, the girl's mother soon appears,
carrying a cup of tea for her husband, the man who had just killed her
daughter. He takes a sip. He smokes a cigarette. He sits beside the body. There
is neither remorse nor sorrow.
