    The brother who did the stabbing is currently standing trial for preparing an Islamic act of terror, and had just been released from custody on February 26.

    Alaa’s attackers then sent the video to her alleged lover. The story, published by German daily Bild, show scenes of the critically wounded girl blackened out, but she can be heard begging for an ambulance, as she is pregnant.

    Die Welt, another German daily, reported that the girl was stabbed by her husband and her brother “in an Islamic rite” and the killers sent the disturbing video to the victim’s boyfriend after the crime.

    This blood-curdling act of violence began on Tuesday evening, when the critically injured girl was abandoned by her two fleeing attackers. They were however arrested on a train in Schweinfurt, 250 kilometers away form the grisly scene.

    Investigators assumed a “relationship incident”, but for sensitive political reasons they initially did not disclose more. The 17-year-old girl from Libya is married to a 34-year-old Syrian by Islamic law, but not by German law. Both of them came to Germany as “refugees”.

    On Friday afternoon, police announced that it appears that before the deed the 17-year-old wanted to divorce from her husband.

    According to Bild newspaper, the young woman was seeing another asylum seeker from neighbouring Biberach. On the evening of the crime, the family was assembled in the parental home in Laupheim. After an argument escalated, the 20-year-old brother drove a knife into his sister’s chest and critically injured her.

    In the video, threatening male voices are heard, and a whimpering woman can also be heard.

    A male voice says: “Can you see where I’m standing? I delight in watching her die, and smoke a cigarette whilst doing so.” The video was allegedly recorded in the home of the 17-year-old, and sent to the boyfriend in Biberach.

    The victim was not fit for questioning on Friday, but is in stable condition. The criminal police are still investigating friends and family of those involved. The 34-year-old man and the 20-year-old brother of the badly injured woman are still in custody on suspicion of attempted murder.

    The 20-year-old brother is an Islamist and currently standing trial for assisting in the preparation of a grave and subversive act of terror, and for perjury. According to the investigators, he was released from custody only on February 26 — shortly before the deed.

    The Stuttgarter Nachrichten reported that the Libyan had been “on the radar” of the special task force of Interior Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU), who is responsible for the deportation of particularly criminal foreigners and terror risks.

    Such crimes are not uncommon in Germany. In February 2005, the German-Turk Hatun Sürücü was shot dead at a bus stop in Berlin. The murder — allegedly an honour crime — caught the headlines across Germany. Her youngest brother was sentenced to nine and a half years in youth detention.

    In the case of the murder of the mother-of-six Hanaa S. from Solingen in 2015, the court established this January that it was a deed “to restore the family honor”.

    The website Ehrenmord.de tracks known cases of Sharia killings in Germany, and has listed at least 12 attempted honour killings, two of them lethal, just in January 2018. Some 77 cases were recorded in 2017, 45 of them deadly, while others “only” left the survivor disfigured.
