15-year-old Bedouin girl stabbed to death in suspected honor killing

15-year-old girl was apparently stabbed to death on Monday in a suspected honor killing in the Bedouin town of Tel Sheva. The victim’s 24-year-old brother called the police to confess to killing her.

Police rushed to the scene and discovered signs of violence on her body. She was pronounced dead immediately. The brother who called the police was arrested, along with his two male siblings.

The brothers were cooperating with the investigation, police said.
