A second-generation Kurdish migrant living in Germany has been publicly executed after refusing to marry her cousin. The westernised young woman was the victim of a “treacherous tradition”, her father said.
The girl’s cousin is currently on the run, and police have obtained a warrant for his arrest.
The 21-year-old was shot dead at a wedding in Hanover in Germany this week. Her father posted a shocking image…of her lying in a pool of blood surrounded by distraught guests on Facebook. …
He specified that his two brothers had tried to arrange the forced marriage with the young woman’s cousin, Sefin, 22, but she had refused.
The father told of how he had left his daughter in the care the brothers when he went on a business trip to Iraq. When he was gone, however, one of the brothers had attempted to marry her to his son without her father’s permission.
When he returned, he said: “She begged me to do something and so I cancelled the engagement”.
