Sad tragedy

There are some tragedies that give pause, wherever we are and whatever we believe.

Woman kills herself after husband refuses to buy colour TV: Report

TEHRAN: An Iranian woman killed herself by setting herself on fire after her husband rejected her repeated demands for a colour television set, Kayhan newspaper reported yesterday.

The report, quoting the head of a hospital in the western city of Khoramabad, said the 27-year-old woman died from burns that were apparently self-inflicted. It said her husband, who worked as a labourer, was too poor to afford a $115 colour television.

What can you say?
