Brother suspected in killing of German-Afghan girl

Police investigating the fatal stabbing of 16-year-old German girl of Afghan origin are searching for her brother on suspicion he carried what media believe may have been an “honor killing”. Police said on Friday they were conducting an all-out search for the victim’s 23-year-old brother, whom they “strongly suspected” was responsible for the attack in a park in a central area of Hamburg on Thursday night. A police spokeswoman said the motive was unclear in response to German media speculation that the girl’s death from multiple stab wounds was the result of an honor killing. “We are investigating in all directions,” she said.
