Ad Feedback

A Canadian businessman is suspected of eliminating his own family in a so-called "Muslim honor killing."
   
Police charged Mohammed Shafi with first degree murder after his three teenage daughters, and another female relative, died last month.

Their bodies were found in a car at the bottom of a canal in Kingston, Canada. Police also charged the girls' mother and brother with murder.

Relatives said Mohammed believed that one of his daughters had dishonored him by having a romantic relationship with a man from Pakistan.
    
An estimated 5,000 women die in honor killings each year.
