Sweden: Brother accused of beating, forcing sister to strip in 'honor crime'
Islam in Europe
A 29-year old resident of LUnd in southern Sweden was charged with threats, coercion, abuse and molestation for beating his little sister (18) in the family home and then forcing her to undress down to her underwear in a nearby playground. The police and prosecution are viewing the incident as honor-related violence.
The brother gave his sister several blows to the face and kicked her in the hip. He threatened to break her arm if she didn't give him her cellphone and told her he would be willing to sit in jail to see her dead.
The woman had been engaged to a man in her parents' homeland, but had left him last year because he beat her.
