Egypt: 10 men suspected for the killing of 3 women in ‘honor’ crime

LUXOR, Egypt — An Egyptian security official says 10 male relatives have killed a mother and her two daughters on suspicion of moral offenses — so-called “honor killings.”

The official said Friday the men suspected the three women of having affairs, and killed them to protect the family’s honor. The three bodies were found in the Nile River near the ancient city of Luxor. They were wrapped in blankets and weighted with stones.
