Prisoners of Kanun
The centuries-old custom of blood feuds has started blighting lives since the collapse of communism in Albania, where many families are living locked down in their houses in fear of blood vengeance. The ancestral code of Kanun includes the right to murder to avenge an earlier killing: ‘blood must be paid with blood’.
