'Honour crime': 11,000 UK cases recorded in five years
by Divya Talwar and Athar Ahmad
More than 11,000 cases of so-called honour crime were recorded by UK police forces from 2010-14, new figures show.
The Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation, which obtained the data, called for a national strategy for police, courts and schools to follow.
The crimes are usually aimed at women, and can include abductions, beatings and even murders.
