She had dirt in her lungs and stomach.  She was 16 years old.

    This was the result of an “honor killing”, done for “dishonoring the family”. What do you have to do to deserve death? Ask for education, a job, a future?

    Turkey is secular, therefore suc terrible actions are punished by law, unfortunatelly some sick traditions still go on and the society is very upset with what happened.
