— Ace Or "honor" killings, I guess. Not sure how "honorable" it is to murder a defenseless woman:
1091 honor killings were committed in Turkey in the past 5 years, said Turkish Parliamentary Investigation Commission which was set up to probe honor killings.
The report says women are maltreated generally by their husbands, fathers or brothers. The common peculiarity of men who resort to violence is that they are young and have low income.
5000 worldwide honor killings annually. 5000 murdered women. With little justice for their murders.
On the plus side -- and this is a big plus -- Turkey is brave enough, and sane enough, as a nation to commission an investigation into this, and reveal the results to the world, no matter how shocking.
