Father, uncle guilty in 'honor killing'
by UPI

LONDON - A court in London has found the father and uncle of a slain 20-year-old woman guilty of arranging and performing her so-called honor killing.

Mahmod Mahmod, 52, and his brother Ari Mahmod, 51, were found guilty of setting up the attack, rape and strangulation of Banaz Mahmod Aga, 20, in the family's London home in 2005.

Her body was stuffed in a suitcase and buried in the back yard of a home in Birmingham, about 150 miles away. It was discovered on April 28, 2006, three months after her murder, and prosecutors said the Iraqi Kurdish community in London tried to conceal her death by telling investigators she was traveling, the Daily Mail reported.

Court heard the men were outraged the woman had fallen in love with another man after her arranged marriage fell apart because of domestic violence.

A statement issued Tuesday by the Crown Prosecution Service put the Muslim community on notice the practice of honor killing would not be tolerated in Britain.

"There is no honor in murder, and no circumstances in which the CPS and the police will not prosecute with the utmost rigor those who commit crimes in the name of so-called honor," the statement said.
