Jordan 'tough' on honour killer


news.bbc.co.uk

The man was initially sentenced to death, but this was commuted to give him the chance to repent.

The court heard that he stabbed his sister 14 times and shot her repeatedly after her former husband accused her of having affairs.

Jordanians convicted of so called "honour killings" have previously been jailed for as little as six months.

This is a real problem in many parts of the world. I am glad it seems at least Jordan is trying to do something about it. The communited sentence is ten years. It remains to be seen if the killer will serve more then six months. In addition to honer killings many others can be badgered into committing honer suicide as well.
