Amnesty International says Iran has executed at least 42 juvenile offenders since 1990, flouting international law.

Father Runs Over Daughter For Being Too "Westernized"
Posted by Edecio Martinez
PEORIA, Ariz. (CBS/AP) Police believe a 20-year-old girl was run over in a Phoenix suburb because she had become too "Westernized." And the man they suspect was behind the wheel was her own father, an Iraqi immigrant.

Police say 48-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki of Glendale allegedly ran his daughter over Tuesday at an Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot in Peoria.

The victim, Noor Faleh Almaleki, who lives in Surprise, Az., a Phoenix suburb, remains hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

A second woman, 43-year-old Amal Edan Khalaf suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police say the women are roommates.

Cynthia Diaz, who witnessed the crash, said Noor Almaleki was unconscious and bleeding from the nose; however, Khalaf was able to communicate.

"I asked her specifically, 'Do you know who did this?'" Diaz said to CBS Affiliate KPHO. "She said yes and she gave a name."

Police said Faleh Almaleki was last seen driving a gray or silver 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with license plate No. ADS-9192.

I've been involved in email requests to stop executions of children (under 18) when executed, one was a 15 year old boy. Iran stopped the executions and then hug the kids a couple of days later. Yet people/countries support a religion, a country and attitude because of oil!

I hope that mercy is shown to these children but I'm not holding my breath.
