Crimes of Honor
AMMAN - Amneh begged her brother: "Take good care of my mother", before he shot her to death in an Amman suburb for getting pregnant out of wedlock. But Amneh's mother supports her 19-year-old son's crime, saying "my daughter made a mistake and should bear the consequences." "I am calm about her death, but I am worried about my son and the kind of punishment he might get, but they tell me that he will get a reduced sentence and will be released soon," she says.
