Murder in Kaabiya

On Saturday May 18th 1996, Ziad Wahash from the village of Kaabiya was supposed to put a ring on Manal Nimr’s finger. Instead, in the presence of hundreds of guests, the engagement ceremony turned into a bloodbath. Although these two powerful families had intermarried before, they were also engaged in a bitter struggle over control of the village. This is the shocking story of the power contest between the men of these families and the desperation of the women who have lost their sons. It’s about pain and vengeance, the horror of blood feuds, the hope for change and the overwhelming fear that the village of Kaabiya will never be reunited.  It’s a rare opportunity for the villagers to speak candidly about how they really feel.
