A 19-year-old Turkish man has been jailed for nine years and three months by a German court for shooting his sister in a so-called “honour killing”.
Ayhan Surucu had confessed to shooting his sister Hatun Surucu, 23, at a bus stop in a Berlin suburb last year.
Two other brothers were cleared of charges of conspiring to murder her.
Prosecutors said the brothers felt dishonoured by their sister, who lived on her own with her son after leaving a cousin she had been forced to marry.
The death of the 23-year-old shocked Germany and led to street protests by Turkish women.
The Berlin court’s presiding judge Michael Degreif said Hatun Surucu was killed “because she lived her life as she saw fit” and had adopted Western ideas of sexual equality, the AFP news agency reports.
