Welcome to the New Europe. From The Copenhagen Post, with thanks to Filtrat:
Police have arrested six members of a Pakistani family for hunting down and killing a 19-year-old girl, who had married against the family’s wishes.
Daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten reported that with two further arrests in the case, five men and one woman were now in remand for the suspected honour killing of Ghazala Abbas, who was shot to death in front of the central station in the western Zealand town of Slagelse on 23 September.
The day before, Abbas had married a 27-year-old Afghan-born man….
Police said the investigation was hampered by the implicated persons’ reluctance to talk, but that the last four arrests had led to a breakthrough in the investigation.
Five of the people arrested are Ghazala’s close relatives, including her father and her older brother, who was the one that shot her to death and severely injured her husband in front of a large group of witnesses in broad daylight in Slagelse.
The couple was married the day before they were attacked, supposedly without the bride’s family’s consent.
Daily newspaper BT reported that a network of Pakistani taxi drivers and the woman arrested had helped the brother track his sister down.
