Canada 'honour' killings: Shafia family found guilty


Three members of an Afghan immigrant family in Canada have been convicted of murdering four female relatives in a so-called "honour" killing.

The bodies - three teenage girls and their father's first wife - were found in a car submerged in a canal in the city of Kingston, Ontario, in 2009.

The three members of the Shafia family convicted were sentenced to a minimum of 25 years each in prison

The BBC's Lee Carter said there are many Muslims who have objected to the "honour" term and believe their community and the Afghan community have been singled out.
