Shafilea Ahmed 'a simple case' of murder

DSI Geraint Jones of Cheshire Police said: "For me this is a simple case of murder. Domestic abuse by two parents.

There is always a trigger. In the case of Shafilea the abuse she suffered is motivated by her parents desire to control her to make her conform to their interpretation of Pakistani culture."
