Jordanian stabs sister in honor killing

A Jordanian police official says a 24-year-old farmer has stabbed his sister to death with a dagger to cleanse the family's honor. The official says the man turned himself in and confessed to killing his 27-year-old sister because he heard rumors she was dating a man.


An average of 20 Jordanian women are killed annually in honor killings. The government has tried to solve the problem with harsher sentences for perpetrators. (AP)
