Italy: Moroccan murders wife in apparent 'honor murder'

The AKI headline says she was murdered for being too Western, but even according to the article itself, what really bothered the husband, was the fact that she had a lover, and that everybody in the Moroccan community knew about it (IT).

Via AKI:
A Moroccan carpenter living in northern Italy is suspected of stabbing his wife to death because she wanted to leave him and begin a more liberated and western life with another man.

Police suspect 36-year old Zrhaida Hammadi of killing his 33-year-old wife Fatima Chabani at their apartment in the city of Padua near Venice by stabbing her repeatedly in the neck and shoulder, severing her jugular vein.

Neighbours telephoned the police after hearing blood-curdling screams from the apartment late Sunday, but the police said they found Chabani already dead and Hammadi awaiting their arrival, sitting motionless in a chair with his head bowed.
