Kuwaiti man kills ‘disobedient’ daughter

Says she does not respect anyone

A Kuwaiti man strangled his 30-year-old daughter to death then phoned the police to say she had committed a suicide.

But investigators questioning the father and his sons discovered “serious” contradictions in their statements and decided to send the body to the coroner.

The Arabic language daily Alanba said forensic examination found that the girl had been severely beaten and strangled.

“The father later confessed that he beat his daughter to death because she did not obey him and did not respect any one at home,” the report said.
