UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: MAN TO BE EXECUTED FOR KILLING PREGNANT WIFE
June 20, 2011: an Abu Dhabi appeals court in the United Arab Emirates sentenced an unidentified man to death for murdering his wife because she got pregnant. He did not want her to get pregnant so his first wife would not know he had married again.
âThe appeals court upheld an earlier death verdict after the victimâs relatives refused to accept diya (blood money) and pardon him,â Alittihad daily said. (Sources: Emirates247.com, 20/06/2011)
