A young woman aged, 17, was beheaded by her husband who paraded the streets holding her head in his hands.

The victim resided in Ahvaz, Southwestern Iran before her gruesome murder by her husband in an “honour killing” considered legitimate by parts of the population in Iran.

An “honour killing” is the murder of an individual, either an outsider or a member of a family by someone seeking to protect what they see as the dignity and honour of themselves or their family.

Iranian prosecutors on Thursday however announced that the man and his brother had been arrested in connection with the killing and would be tried soon.

It is unclear whether the husband and his brother would be tried for murder or “honour killing” but critics contend that all killings of this sort should be considered murder and tried as such.
