Friesland: First shelter for 'honor' crime victims

The first shelter for 'honor' crime victims is opening Sunday in Friesland: young women who are on the run from the revenge of family members. According to social workers such a shelter is very needed.

Last year more than 200 victims were received, mostly in women's shelters. But they are not organized for this group of especially Turkish and Moroccan girls, that need extra protection.

The location of the special 'honor crime' shelter is being held secret for security reasons. The goal is that such shelters will also open in other parts of the Netherlands.
