Noor Almaleki has died

Killed by her father.

He ran over her with his Jeep on Oct 20/09.
On purpose.

By his own admission, this was an intentional act and the reason was that 'his daughter had brought shame on him and his family,' Arizona State Prosecutor Stephanie Low said.

Meanwhile, this Arizona Republic newsreporter calls it a hit and run instead of what it is . . ... a homicide. He writes 'Social experts say honor killings are an accepted practice in Iraqi tribal society, where family members feel they must kill a woman who shames them by not adhering to traditional Muslim or Iraqi values.'

He's either woefully ignorant of the issues surrounding muslim honor killings, or complicit in their commission.
