Jordan: man kills pregnant sister to “cleanse family honor

AMMAN – The Jordanian authorities are questioning a 22-year- old man, who allegedly killed his pregnant married sister for reasons related to family honour, the Jordan Times reported Friday, quoting official sources.

The 20-year-old victim, who was not identified by officials, received three fatal bullets to the side of her head, reportedly by her brother, at her in-law’s house in western Amman Wednesday night.

The suspect immediately headed to the nearest police station and turned himself in, handing over the gun he used to shoot his sibling to officers on duty.

“The suspect told police he had just killed his sister to cleanse his family’s honour,” the sources said.

The victim became the fifth person reportedly murdered in a so- called honour crime since the beginning of the year, the paper said. Last year, a total of 18 people were killed for reasons of “honour” in Jordan, according to official sources.

Another honor killing in Jordan: Man drowns sister in Dead Sea

* Guess that’s why its called the ‘dead sea?’ NOT!

The second reported honor killing in Jordan in less than a week. “Jordan charges man with killing sister suspected of having extramarital affair,” from the Associated Press, May 12:

A Jordanian judicial official says the country’s state prosecutor has charged a man with premeditated murder who is suspected of drowning his 22-year-old sister for having an extramarital affair.

The official says the unidentified woman’s brother beat her with the help of his family Saturday and then took her to the Dead Sea, where he drowned her.

The official says the state prosecutor also charged the woman’s parents and another brother Monday with assisting in the murder by knowing about it and for beating the woman before she died. He says they carried out their suspected actions after seeing an unidentified man leaving the slain woman’s house.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
