    The suspect is wanted for allegedly murdering his own cousin after she refused to marry him.

    Kurdish Iraqi police forces announced that they managed to apprehend a suspect sought by German authorities and Interpol for murder.

    According to Lt. Col. Hayman Suliman, the police apprehended the suspect, a 24-year old Yazidi man named Sefin Nouman Biso, in the Dohuk province of Iraqi Kurdistan.

    In 2016, Biso reportedly murdered his 21-year old cousin, Shilan Ghazi Biso, right in front of the guests at a wedding ceremony in Hanover, after she refused to marry him.
