Russian has daughter killed over clothing

In a horrible story, a Russian immigrant in St. Petersburg has been charged with hiring a pair of hitmen to kill his 21-year old daughter. Two men abducted the girl, a university medical student, on March 8 and shot her twice in the head. Her crime?

Wearing a miniskirt.

From the article:
Russia has experienced a revival of conservative religious tradition since the fall of the Soviet Union both within its Russian Orthodox and large Muslim communities.
