"Honor" Killing

This is grotesque. (dated Christmas Day)

Bibi recounted how she was woken by a shriek as Ahmed put his hand to the mouth of his stepdaughter Muqadas and cut her throat with a machete. Bibi looked helplessly on from the corner of the room as he then killed the three girls — Bano, 8, Sumaira, 7, and Humaira, 4 — pausing between the slayings to brandish the bloodstained knife at his wife, warning her not to intervene or raise alarm.

All I can do is shake my head in disappointment and hope. Hope in that one day we can raise humans to treat another as they would expect to be treated. So many lack empathy, common sense, and a conscience, it's unbelievable.
