Germany/Switzerland: Honor killings
Two recent honor killing stories:
In Germany, five siblings are suspected of killing Kurdish Arzu Ö. (18) in November because they disapproved of her relationship with her boyfriend. The siblings, four brothers and a sister, have been held for months but refuse to cooperate with the policy. Arzu's body was apparently found this week.
In Switzerland, a Pakistani is on trial for axing his daughter, Swera (16), to death. Swera's Christian boyfriend also said her parents disapproved of her relationship with him. The father is on trial also for a previous unsuccessful murder attempt.
