I make no apology for what may look like me just lazily redirecting readers to another site. It’s just that I think Robert Fisk’s series in this week’s Independent on so-called honour crimes is so important everyone should read it.

So here are the links:

The crimewave that shames the world

One woman’s nightmare, and a crime against humanity

Relatives with blood on their hands

The lie behind mass ‘suicides’ of Egypt’s young women

The truth about ‘honour’ killings

A place of refuge from fear and guilt
