Man chokes wife to death for giving birth to third baby girl

A man  allegedly choked his wife to death after she gave birth to a baby girl for the third time.

30-year-old Storay was  choked to death by her husband and mother-in-law after she gave birth to the third girl.

The murder took place in a remote village in Khanabad district of Kunduz province, which is located in northern Afghanistan. Storay’s mother-in-law has been arrested but her husband has fled and the Police in northern Afghanistan are looking for him.

Despite the fall of the Taliban more than a decade ago, violence and abuse of women continues to be a serious problem in Afghanistan. Human rights activists have criticized Afghan authorities for their failure to protect women, and the issue was highlighted again by two recent cases.
