Attempted honor killing

This time it's a young man in upstate New York who stabs his sister because he thinks she's not behaving properly and thus bringing dishonor on the family. The news report of the incident repeats that honor killings are not part of Islam but belong to older tribal traditions. Here's my question: does any one know of an Islamic country where honor killings do not occur? (Thanks to Jihad Watch.)
