Shameful religion, shameful culture.
Yahoo News – A Jordanian man has turned himself in to police after shooting dead his 30-year-old daughter in the Jordan Valley in an apparent new “honour killing”, a security source said on Tuesday.
“The man shot his daughter several times after a quarrel as he tried to prevent her from leaving home,” the source told AFP.
“The suspect has confessed to killing his daughter because she regularly disappeared for several days.”
In November, a 33-year-old Jordanian was charged with premeditated murder for strangling his divorced sister, aged 29, for leaving home for more than a year “without permission.”
Some dozen so-called “” are reported in Jordan each year, with the killers often receiving light sentences if convicted.
