Justice: Shafilea Ahmed's Parents Guilty

Justice for Shafilea Ahmed:

A couple who killed their 'westernised' teenage daughter because they believed she had brought shame on the family were convicted of her murder today - nine years after the brutal killing.

Iftikhar Ahmed, 52, and his wife Farzana, 49, of Liverpool Road, Warrington, Cheshire, suffocated Shafilea, 17, with a plastic bag in 2003 in an apparent 'honour killing'.

They were jailed for at least 25 years each.
