‘Honour’ killing inquiry into Irish stabbing

U.TV: Irish detectives are investigating the murder of a Pakistani man in what may have been the Republic’s first so-called honour killing, according to Garda sources.

The 32-year-old Pakistani national died in a Dublin hospital on Friday after being stabbed in an apartment in Drogheda, Co Louth, on Thursday.

A 30-year-old woman who was also stabbed is being treated in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda. Her injuries are not life-threatening.

A 30-year-old man was arrested in Drogheda late on Thursday night. A Garda source said detectives were working on the theory that the murder may have been an “honour” killing.
