    I think the most significant part of the story is this:

    Turkish police Friday detained an unmarried mother and six other people near Istanbul for their suspected role in the so-called "honor killing" of a 2-day-old baby girl, state news agency Anatolian said.

    There are many places where if anyone were detained, it would have been the mother, if she hadn't already been killed by her family. And the crime she would have been detained for would have been sex outside of marriage and having an illegitimate child, and nothing else.

    I will be interested to see some followup on who ends up being found guilty of what, and what punishment is meted out.
