Father jailed for honor killing in Denmark.

EU: and more await their sentences.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark - A Danish court on Wednesday sentenced a father of Pakistani origin to life in prison for the honor killing of his 18-year-old daughter, while the brother who shot her, and two uncles each received 16 years in prison. Ghazala Khan was gunned down by her brother alongside her newly wedded Afghan husband in broad daylight in front of a provincial railway station in eastern Denmark. Her husband, Emal, survived, but now lives under police protection. “In the sentencing, the court considered that the murder of Ghazala and the attempted murder of Emal were carefully planned and committed by several people in collusion,” the court said in its verdict.
