An Algerian man used a kitchen knife to slaughter his 16-year-old daughter after discovering pictures of American and Turkish actors in her mobile phone.
The man, identified as B. Majeed, sent his second wife and her children to her family so he could be left alone with his teen age daughter, Lidya.
“After finding photographs of some American and Turkish actors in her mobile phone, the father decided to kill his daughter and made plans for the murder,” the Algerian Arabic language daily Al Nahar said.
“When he was alone with her at home, he grabbed her and put the knife on her neck…he then slaughtered her like a sheep.”
The paper said the man, who had Lidya from his first wife, then phoned the police and surrendered to them.
