A WOMAN was kidnapped, drugged and strangled to death by her own father after the pair had an explosive row, report claim.
Taiba Alali was reportedly abducted by her relatives when she returned home to Iraq to support her country’s football team.

But when Taiba travelled to see Iraq compete in the Arabian Gulf Cup in January, she was allegedly kidnapped by her relatives.
According to local media, she had agreed to meet her mother at a friend’s house in Baghdad before being ambushed by her entire family.
They then allegedly drugged Taiba before transporting her back to the family home in the Al-Qadisiyyah Governorate.
After she regained consciousness, she reportedly became embroiled in a furious row with her father.
He later snuck into Taiba’s room and strangled her to death, it is understood.
The dad, who has not been named, turned himself into the police and allegedly told them he had killed his daughter to “wash away the shame”.
He is now under investigation for Taiba’s murder.

But in a horror twist, the alleged killer could escape jail due to a bizarre loophole in Iran’s penal code.
If the death is declared an “honour killing”, judges are allowed to give lenient sentences for those who kill for “honourable motives” or under provocation.
A March 2021 Home Office report on the code states: “Article 409 of the Iraqi Penal Code permits ‘honour’ as a mitigation for crimes of violence committed against family members and the Code allows for lenient punishments for ‘honour killings’ on the grounds of provocation or if the accused had ‘honourable motives’.
“The law does not provide guidance as to what ‘honourable motives’ are and, therefore, leaves scope for wide interpretation.”
