Palestinian man in Jordan man kills daughter

may all the victims of Shariah honor murders rest in peace.

AMMAN, Jordan: A Jordanian judicial official says a Palestinian man from a refugee camp has shot to death his 17-year-old daughter allegedly to cleanse the family’s honor.

Many Jordanians consider sex out of wedlock a stain on a family’s reputation. An average of 20 Jordanian women are killed by relatives every year in so-called honor killings.

The official says the 60-year-old man confessed to killing his daughter Wednesday when he was in a state of fury.

Forensic doctors say an autopsy showed the girl was still a virgin.

The official and doctors spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because they were not authorized to talk to the media. The names of the father and daughter were not provided
