A 20 year old young lady, who escaped from Syria after being gang raped, has been found stabbed to death in Germany in what is thought to be an “honour” killing.
It is reported the family considered this unfortunate lady to be “unclean”.
Her father and brothers cannot be located.
Last year a 75 year old Pakistani-born New York resident beat his wife (66 years old) to death after she cooked the wrong meal for him.
His defence was his “culture and tradition permitted him to chastise his wife”.
Let us hope the Irish authorities will not have to deal with such occurrences.
