Two Most Determined Cases of Muslim Drowning

Mark Steyn notes today that Muslim females are dying in odd water accidents in Canada.
Three or so weeks back, a submerged car was found in the Rideau Canal in Kingston, Ont., containing the bodies of three teenage girls and their aunt — a story initially reported as "Mysterious Death Of 4 Quebecers Baffles Kingston Police". When it emerged that the four female Quebecers were, in fact, Muslim, the tearful parents offered up a strange tale of an impromptu midnight driving lesson gone tragically wrong ("Driving Lesson May Have Led To Drowning").

La Presse is now reporting that the girls' father, mother, and brother have been arrested en route to Montreal Airport, and that the deceased "aunt" or (alternatively) "cousin" was, in fact, the girls' father's first wife. The words "crime d'honneur" are beginning to creep into newspaper accounts.
The blogger Scaramouche suspects that an odd swimming pool accident in which three female members of a Muslim family drowned, and another is critical, should get a second look.
Police say 14-year-old Kinza Kaianad died Monday evening at Kingston General Hospital as a result of injuries she sustained Saturday in a hotel pool in Gananoque, roughly 30 kilometres east of Kingston.

Her mother, 43-year-old Naila Yasmin, died in hospital on Sunday.

Yasmin, Kaianad and another daughter, age 11, were found unconscious in the indoor hotel pool just before 9 a.m. Saturday.
Steyn calls it "statistically improbable" that these were mere accidental drownings. It seems more likely that here in the summer months, once the ice has thawed, water is the preferred means of honor executions.
