Yemen: Outrage after man tortures and murders 10-year-old daughter for “adultery”

Sana’a: A Yemeni father callously tortured and killed his daughter, 10, for allegedly committing adultery in the northern Dhamar province, a local official who questioned the man told Gulf News on Tuesday.

On the weekend, Yemenis on social media widely circulated a photo of a tortured girl who was found dead by shepherds in a rugged area in the northern province of Ibb.

Within hours, police found out that the girl was killed by her father.

Colonel Mohammad Qassem Al Hadi, the director of Dhamar’s Criminal Investigation Department, said that the man admitted that he brutally tortured and shot her four times with his rifle.

    Is honor killing a valid defense in Yemen. No doubt it is, Lets hope this “outrage” will not be faux outrage and they will do something to stop honor killings.
