British Muslim Parents Get Life For Honour Killing
The girl was murdered by her Pak parents for her Western ways. And it was her little sister who bravely told jurors how her mother and father suffocated the 17-year-old with a plastic bag -- gripping testimony that led to her parents' murder conviction on Friday.
Justice Roderick Evans sentenced Iftikhar, 52, and Farzana Ahmed, 49, to life in prison for killing their daughter, Shafilea Ahmed, in 2003. The couple -- first cousins from the Pak village of Uttam -- were ordered to serve a minimum of 25 years in prison.
| Convicted by the diary of a friend of one of the sisters. Contemporaneous diary entries corroborated the witness of the little sister, who was only ten when it happened. More details at the link.|
