Gülsüm Semin

Gülsüm Semin, 20, Germany.

20-year-old ethnic Kurdish woman, Gülsüm was strangled with a clothes line and clubbed to death in March 2009.

Her brother confessed to the crime. Germans have been outraged at a recent series of execution-style honour killings of young women by immigrant families.

The murder of Gülsüm, 20, on a lonely country road one month ago had been made to look as it were a robbery, said police in Kleve, near the Dutch border, as they announced the arrest and remand in custody of the victim’s brother and father.  Prosecutors said Gülsüm was lured by a false story to the side road near the small town of Rees on March 2. Her sibling, who was also a triplet to Gülsüm, allegedly choked her unconscious with a clothes line.  She was then clubbed to death.  Although the brother admitted to the killing, the father denied the charge of joint murder, police said.

Police said the family had attempted to force Gülsüm into a planned marriage and then discovered she was not a virgin and that she had undergone one or more abortions.
