A father slit the throat of his three teenage daughters in an honor killing after they were raped by Gaddafi loyalists during the siege of the port city of Misrata

Allegations of the shocking executions are contained in a report by the respected Physicians for Human Rights group into war crimes and atrocities in the embattled city, which faced two months of being cut off from the rest of Libya. The father is said to have carried out the honor killings because of his humiliation and shame at the rape of the sisters – aged 15, 17 and 18 – in Tomina, on the outskirts of Misrata.
