Germany: Five Yazidi siblings jailed for 'honour' killing
I reported about this murder in the past, but I did not realize the family was Yazidi.
Via Postmedia News:
In my 'In Other News' feed I reported last month about another Yazidi honor killing, this time in Sweden: Maria Barin Aydin (19) was knifed to death in her apartment in Landskrona on April 23. Her brother (16) was arrested for her murder, and her mother was arrested for incitement to murder. Maria Barin had previously turned to help after getting threats from her family.A court in Germany jailed five Kurdish siblings on Wednesday for the "honour killing" of their 18-year-old sister after she left home to live with her German boyfriend.
The court in the western city of Detmold was told the family was furious when Arzu O chose to live her life her own way, following German customs, instead of the immigrant family's Yazidi traditions, and broke off contact with her parents.(source)
