Hmmmm

So, great picture got by photographer is celebrated at The Guardian.

He brought us to see a young woman, Lina. She was 28 – although she looked older – and very beautiful. She told us about her husband, who was murdered. She wouldn\’t tell us why he was killed; we got the impression it was over money or drugs. Kanun dictates that the family of the victim has to take revenge, so her goal was to kill her husband\’s murderer. The revenge target is forced to stay inside: he could be stuck at home two years, four years, 10 years, maybe all his life. If Lina killed him, she would then become a target – and have to stay indoors indefinitely herself.

Well, OK, but the Albanian blood feuds only apply to the men, not the women as well.
