"A jury has found an Afghan man, his wife and their son guilty of killing three teenage sisters and another wife in what the judge called 'cold-blooded, shameful murders' resulting from a 'twisted concept of honour' in a case that has shocked and riveted Canadians. ... Canadian prosecutors said the defendants allegedly killed the three teenage sisters because they dishonoured the family by defying its disciplinarian rules on dress, dating, socialising and internet use."
