Dishonourable Killing

The parents of 17-year-old Shafilea Ahmed have been convicted of her "honour" killing and will each serve 25 years in prison (CLICK). What a shameful waste of a beautiful girl! Two of my work colleagues were shipped back to Pakistan for arranged marriages. The tall, beautiful one visited us a year or so later with her baby. The fat one returned with two black eyes, whether from weeping or from being punched I couldn't tell. She kept silent.These young victims are the tip of an iceberg.
