Afghan man kills wife for giving birth to third daughter

KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (REUTERS) - An Afghan man killed his wife for giving birth to a third daughter rather than the son he hoped for, police in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province said on Monday. The victim, 28, known by the one name of Storai, was strangled by her husband - a local militia member - and his mother on Saturday in revenge for bearing the couple's third daughter three months ago in Mohasili village, police said. Police said they arrested the victim's mother-in-law in connection with her death, but Storai's husband was still at large, likely sheltered by heavily-armed militia colleagues. 'The existence of militiamen is a huge problem and therefore we face difficulty in arresting him,' said Kunduz police chief Sufi Habib.
