Brooklyn cabbie gets life in U.S. prison over Pakistan 'honor killings'

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 02:49
By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Brooklyn cab driver was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday for arranging the "honor killings" of two family members of a man who helped his daughter flee from Pakistan to the United States to escape an arranged marriage. Mohammad Ajmal Choudhry, 62, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge William Kuntz in Brooklyn, New York, following his conviction last year on charges including conspiring to commit murder in a foreign country. Kuntz said Choudhry had orchestrated a "calculated, cold-blooded" scheme after his daughter, with the help of the man she wanted to be with, fled her husband in Pakistan, who she was forced to marry so he could obtain a U.S. visa. Prosecutors said that for more than three years, Choudhry's daughter, Amina Ajmal, was held against her will by relatives in Pakistan at her father's direction, and forced into the arranged marriage.

De Blasio and Schumer take a photo with commuter Zilla Kasimov as they ride the R subway train during morning rush hour from Brooklyn to City Hall in ManhattanMayor Bill de Blasio said New Yorkers don't appreciate his "very special" accomplishments since he took office in January 2014, and criticized the actions of his predecessors and even President Barack Obama, according to a Rolling Stone interview. De Blasio, who has fulfilled a campaign promise to establish universal pre-Kindergarten education and is pressing forward with other reform programs, was quoted as saying out-of-towners see his administration' more clearly than his own constituents. "A lot of people outside New York City understand what happened in the first year of New York City better than people in New York City," de Blasio said in the interview, published online on Wednesday. "While big-picture successes can sometimes be overshadowed by short-term headlines, it is these important priorities for New Yorkers that should be the focus," Kadushin said.
