Egyptian murders wife for leaving house

From Daily News Egypt:
An Egyptian man has killed his wife by strangling her with a scarf and then stabbing her with a kitchen knife for leaving the house without his permission, newspapers reported on Saturday.

The woman infuriated her husband when she refused to explain why she left home without his authorization, the state-run Al-Gomhuria and the independent Al-Masry Al-Youm reported.

Well, he couldn't not kill her...that would set a bad precedent.

Chalk up another victory for "honor."
