Jihad al-Issa, 21, killed his 18-year-old pregnant sister Bughdad in what was first claimed to be an “honor crime”. The young man, who admitted to committing the crime, stabbed the girl in her abdomen. He then pulled her and started beating her on the head with stones.

It was later revealed that the child she was carrying was a result of a drunken rape act by her brother. [LBC]
