Turkish girl 'buried alive for talking to boys'

The hole where the body was uncovered
A 16-year-old Turkish girl was buried alive by relatives as a punishment for talking to boys, the Hurriyet newspaper reported on Thursday.

Police discovered the body of the girl, identified only as M.M., in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-meter-deep hole dug under a chicken pen outside her house in Kahta in the southeastern province of Adiyaman, the Turkish daily reported on its website.

An autopsy revealed dirt in the victim’s lungs, thus confirming that she was alive when her father and grandfather buried her.

The teenager's father and grandfather were arrested over the suspected 'honor killing' after police unearth the shackled body.

The usual Muslim suspects in the West will go on TV to decry this murder and every commentator will make sure to remind us that this is not reflective of Islam.

No comment was heard from the N.O.W.  I guess this is because they cannot tie the murder to white American males.

Meanwhile in the Muslim world the silence will continue to be deafening.  And honor killings will continue.
