    Woman Thrown Into Egypt’s Nile Over Divorce, Highlights Honor Violence

    According to news reports on Wednesday, an Egyptian man and his family tied up their daughter and threw her into the Nile river as a result of a divorce to her aging husband, who mistreat her and abused the young woman.

    Luckily, a fisherman saw the girl and rescued her before she died, Emirates 24/7 reported.

    According to their report, the girl had initially refused to marry the elderly man, but then acquiesced to her family pressure and wed, the report, which cited local Egyptian newspapers said.

    After she and the man divorced over abuse, she returned to her family, who when the girl refused to remarry the man, was tossed into the river in an “honor crime.”

    “If this is really what happened, then it shows that there is a lot of work to counter honor violence in this country, where women and girls are killed because, simply, they are women,” Nora Tarek, a university student and women’s rights researcher in Cairo, told Bikyamasr.com. “We need help and we need to speak up.”

    Last year, a 22-year-old woman was found dead on the Marsa Matrouh coastal road, with a noose around her neck, fully dressed and bleeding. Identifying the body and asking the family for information, the woman’s uncle confessed that her brother, an unemployed laborer, killed his married younger sister after he accused her of fleeing her home with a stranger.
