Testimonies on Honor Crimes

Abir Hamdar

Abstract


Ten years ago, a young girl from a small village in the Bekaa valley was shot to death to 'cleanse the family honor'. Twenty-five men from the victim's clan witnessed the scene. Al Raida meets one of those men - who happens to be the girl 's uncle on her mother's side - and he recounts in detail what took place. This is what 75-year old AbuMufid (initials A.A) said.
