Girl buried alive in Turkish honour killing

A 16-YEAR-OLD girl was buried alive by relatives in southeast Turkey in a gruesome honour killing just because she reportedly befriended boys, the Anatolia news agency reported today.

Acting on a tip-off, police discovered Medine Memi's body in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-metre deep hole in a chicken pen outside her house in Kahta town, Adiyaman province, 40 days after she went missing, the agency said.

A subsequent post mortem revealed that she had a significant amount of soil in her lungs and stomach, meaning that she was buried alive, forensic experts told the agency.

"The autopsy result is blood-curdling. According to our findings, the girl, who had no bruises on her body and no sign of narcotics or poison in her blood, was alive and fully conscious when she was buried," one anonymous expert said.

Medine's father and grandfather have been formally arrested and jailed pending trial over her killing, the agency said.

The father is reported to have said in his testimony that the family was unhappy she had male friends.

In honour killings, most prevalent in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, a so-called family council names a member to murder a female relative considered to have sullied the family honour, usually by engaging in an extra-marital affair.

But the practice has gone so far as to kill rape victims or women who simply talked to strange men.

Where are the feminists of the world? Why aren't more of them standing up and speaking out against this? Oh, wait.....we can't insult the Muslims now can we. It really just makes me sick.

This absolutely sickens me. They killed this child just because she became friends with a boy? This really illustrates how some muslims consider women to be property.

Far more common than we wish to believe, it is about time that we stopped trying to be polite about such things and stand up and say "No More!" I am past the point of possibly insulting Muslims. This is an abomination and must be punished accordingly..

I ........ I think I'm going to be sick. I admit it, I can't wrap my head around the agony and the torture that this girl went through. How vile and cruel do you have to be to carry out such an evil act?

This just turns my stomach. How freaking evil do you have to be to bury your own child alive? I hope the men who did this rot in jail and then in hell.

There is "honor" in killing a child, let alone a son or daughter? A while back I posited this question. If God, in whatever manifestation you have for God came to you, and you KNEW you were talking to your God, and that God asked you to kill your son would you do it? If you answered , you don't believe in your God, if on the other hand you answered "YES" , well I want to stay as far away as humanly possible.
