Denmark Honor-violence: 17-year-old girl whipped

"Copenhagen Police arrested four close family members of a 17-year-old girl Tuesday night (March 5th 2013). ... 
Those arrested are two married couples with Palestinian background - the girl's parents and her aunt and uncle. ... It is a case of honor-related violence, which apparently stems from the fact that the family could not accept that the girl has got a Danish boyfriend. 
The girl's parents picked her up Monday at Nørrebro and according to the prosecutor they lured her to come with them to visit some family members in Taastrup (Copenhagen suburb), where other family members waited for her. 
The father told one of the other family members that he or she was allowed to kill her, and that the father did not want to see her again. 
Then the girl's parents left, and the girl was ordered to undress, after which she was beaten with a leather belt, got her hair cut off and had a belt tightened around her neck so she could not breathe. 
The violence lasted for two hours but stopped, as the 17-year-old succeeded in escaping from the house. She then called the police."
