Sweden: Afghan couple convicted of honor killing

An Afghan couple was found guilty on Tuesday of a grisly "honor killing" for which their son had already served four years in prison.

 

A Swedish appeals court sentenced Raoof Ataei, 47, and Leyla Ataei, 45, to 10 years each in prison for the 2005 murder of their daughter's boyfriend, who was doused with boiling oil, beaten with a baseball bat and stabbed repeatedly. (AP)
