Parents of Muslim teenager suspected of 'honor killing'

The parents of Shafilea Ahmed, a Muslim British teenager found dead in 2004, have been arrested on Thursday on suspicion of having murdered their daughter in an "honor killing."
Ahmed's remains were discovered in a river in Kent, Cumbria five months after her disappearance in late 2003. It was later said that she rebelled against her parents by refusing an arranged marriage and swallowing bleach during a forced trip to Pakistan to meet a prospective husband.
The couple were being questioned by police.
