A 17-year-old girl in Australia was frightened of being sent overseas by her parents for a forced marriage, so she called the police and asked to be put on the watch list at the airport so that she would be stopped by officials before she left the country. The authorities have intervened, and the girl’s parents — who are Lebanese — have been enjoined from coercing harassing, intimidating, or assaulting her.
In other news, in the Palais de Justice in Brussels, a disgruntled Albanian immigrant shot a judge to death and killed her assistant with an axe. The assailant was injured before he fled, and police are looking for him.
