Publisher shelves honour killing book in fear of Islamist retaliation
A Düsseldorf publisher has cancelled print of a murder mystery because of fears that its subject matter – an honour killing – would put employees at risk for Islamist retaliation, according to news magazine Der Spiegel.
The Droste Verlag was supposed to begin selling the book, entitled Wem Ehre gebührt, or "To Whom Honour is Due," in September. But shortly before it went to print, the publisher removed it from its list because author Gabriele Brinkmann (pseudonym W.W. Domsky), refused to censor certain passages, the magazine said.
