(h/t Scarce)

I hardly know what to write about this..."honor killings" (an oxymoron if ever there was one) are such a horrific practice (although by no means limited to Iraq) that there's no way to be anything but sickened by it. Especially when you realize that dozens of men--including police officers--not only did nothing to save Du'a Khalil Aswad, but were actually jostling for position to record her brutal death on their camera phones.

Can you help us out?
