Muslim father runs over his daughter in fatal attack because she was ‘too westernised’ in America
A young Iraqi woman whose father allegedly ran her over because she became ‘too westernised’ has died in hospital.
Noor Faleh Almaleki, 20, underwent spinal surgery and was in a coma for nearly two weeks before she finally succumbed to her horrific injuries.
Police said her father mowed down her and her boyfriend’s mother with his Jeep as the women were walking across a car park in the west Phoenix suburb of Peoria, Arizona, U.S.
Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef said Noor died in hospital yesterday, but the other woman, Amal Edan Khalaf, 43, was expected to survive.
Noor’s father, 48-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki believed his daughter was not living according to his traditional Iraqi values, police said.
Mr Tellef said the family moved to the Phoenix area in the mid-1990s, and Almaleki was unhappy with his daughter’s style of dress and her resistance to his rules.
Family members said he attacked his daughter and ploughed into her and her boyfriend’s mother in the parking area to get his revenge.

Almaleki fled the scene and was on the run for 10 days until he was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Atlanta, Georgia.
After the incident, Almaleki’s father drove to Mexico, abandoning his vehicle in Nogales, Peoria police said.
He then made his way to Mexico City and boarded a plane to Britain, where authorities denied him entry into the country and put him on a plane back to the United States, police said.
Almaleki was returned to Arizona last weekend and taken to a county jail.
He had faced charges of aggravated assault
