'Honor Killings' Plague Germany's Turkish Community

In Berlin, six young Turkish women have been murdered in the past five months in "honor killings." The most recent incident involved a woman shot on the street by her brothers. Police say the women were killed because their traditional, conservative families believe the women had become too Western.
