Remember my April post on honor killings? If you remember, the sentencing was postponed to September and the family of the deceased has refused to budge. Negotiations have been going on for more than a year. Less than an hour ago the judge handling the case sentenced the killer. He is to be executed. I have received this news from 17 different sources in the past half hour, non of them official. However, I assume it's correct. Many details have emerged about the chaos inside the courtroom. In all cases, I have mixed feelings. He murdererd a man, and even though he deserves punishment, my heart feels heavy. Today I will be praying for the families of both the victim and the criminal. I can't even begin to imagine what they must be going through. This case has been the talk of Salalah for the past year and a half. Please pray for them.
