What is honor violence and do we see this form of violence in the United States?

Ayaan talks with Detective Chris Boughey about honor killings in the United States. Detective Boughey describes the 2009 killing of Noor Almaleki by her father. He explains the role the family plays during honor violence cases and the reasons behind honor killings.
