13-year-old Canadian girl beaten to death for refusing to pray
Dad in custody after daughter, 13, dies - Girl refused to say prayers with father: neighbours

By Brian Daly, QMI Agency

MONTREAL — A 13-year-old girl whose beating death led to the arrest of her 71-year-old father had enraged him by refusing to say her prayers, according to neighbours.

Noutene Sidime died Saturday evening in suburban Longueuil, Que., three days after she was rushed to hospital unconscious and bleeding from her nose.

Her father, Moussa Sidime, had called 911 last Wednesday. Sidime was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, but the charges could be upgraded, police said.


There were tears and tributes at Sidime’s high school Tuesday as students returning from the long weekend gathered by the hundreds in the schoolyard. They released balloons and remembered a happy girl who was once honoured as the coolest student in her class.

Grr. Time for him to say his. His imaginary friend is NOT going to help him.

Disgusting. I hope they throw him in jail for life.

he'll be among his christian friends in prison. Then he'll pray for a different reason. I hope he has no hope...

I was surprised that he was only charged with aggravated assault, but I guess it will come down to the autopsy for now. While I am disgusted that a man would hit his daughter (for any reason), there's not much I can say about her death with so little information available. It is possible that the aggravated assault charge is all he deserves.

Just another shining example of God's good works, eh?

Devastating, and incredibly sad. :-/

No, no, you don't understand. It's all god's plan. Seriously. Give me money.

This is horrible. I find it terribly disturbing. It makes me very angry.

I hope he goes to prison and is forced against his will to commit abominable acts with other men.
