Ynetnews reports: Bedouin woman Hanan al-Bakhiri, 19, who has been missing for 20 days, is feared kidnapped and murdered in an honor killing, police said Tuesday.

Police arrested several suspects from the young woman’s family, including Anwar, 33, the eldest brother of al-Bakhiri. Although no body has been found, a police representative said at a remand extension hearing that the police knew for certain that Hanan was dead and how she had been murdered.

“This is a sensitive case,” the police representative said. “All the evidence gathered so far indicates that the woman is not alive, we know with absolute certainty that she is not alive.” The mother of the missing woman testified that she suspected her daughter had been murdered.
