Gaza police have arrested family members over the deaths of two Palestinian teenage girls, one of them the victim of a suspected "honor" killing, Hamas authorities said Monday.So-called honour killings, in which a family member murders a relative who is perceived to have soiled the family's reputation, occur periodically in the Palestinian territories.In 2011, following the murder of a woman in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas pledged to amend a decades-old law under which those citing "honour" as a defence could expect to receive a jail sentence of no more than six months.
