This is No "Honor Killing"

But simply plain sectarian murder.

Four Coptic Christians have been shot dead in broad daylight at a jewellery shop in a busy district of the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Details remain sketchy, but witness accounts speak of two men, wearing wigs and sunglasses, entering the shop and opening fire with automatic weapons.

...There are fears the attack may have been sectarian or even political.

...The shop's owner and three of his assistants were killed in the attack. All four were Christian Copts.

Might have been?

From this account, I'm not seeing any indications that these were dishonor killings.

The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother's Day 2008. The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law. We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.
