END TIME: Another Pregnant woman has throat slit and stomach cut open


A pregnant woman had her throat slit and belly cut open as part of a gruesome "honor" killing in Jordan, police said.
Her dead body - with the four-month-old fetus clearly visible - was then dumped in a garbage container and set ablaze.
Cops discovered her charred remains at dawn in Ruseifa, east of Amman, on Sunday.
"We believe it was an honor crime," said a police spokesman.
"The belly of the woman, in her twenties, was cut open and we could see her four-month-old unborn child, who was dead too. Investigations are still under way," he added.
Sources suggest the killing could have been carried out because she was pregnant outside of marriage or that the unborn baby was illegitimate.
The Jordan Times reports that "the fact [...]her stomach was cut open is a strong indication that she was killed for reasons related to family honor."
Witnesses said they saw two men, driving a truck, pull up to the dumpster before throwing in the body and setting it on fire with a flammable liquid.
