Woman Murdered in Mobile Phone Honour Killing

A Jordanian man shot dead his divorced sister after seeing her photo on his friend’s camera-equipped mobile in the latest honour killing in the kingdom. The unidentified man shot the 31-year-old mother twice in the head Sunday night and then turned himself in to police saying he committed the murder to cleanse his family’s honour. The incident is the fifth example of a so-called honour killing in Jordan this year. Those found guilty usually face sentences of a maximum of one year in jail under Jordanian law — via BoingBoing
