Even Al-Jazeera reporting on “honour killing” trial

The trial of a Montreal man, his wife and son is garnering much attention worldwide.

Mohammad Shafia, his wife Tooba and their son Hamed are charged with the first-degree murders of Zainab, Sahar and Geeti Shafia, as well as Shafia’s first wife, Rona Amir Mohammad, who were found drowned on June 30, 2009.

We hear about honour killings in other countries but in Canada?

This is where people come for a better life for their family.

The details of the case are shocking and we must be careful not to convict, but it is unfathomable what has happened to these women.

There is no honour in killing.
