My daughter’s death will not be used to further this insane persecution of innocent people,
Written by Rosie Ayliffe, mother of a slain British backpacker, to US President Donald Trump after her daughter Mia Ayliffe-Chung was killed in Australia.
On Monday, Trump criticized the media for bad reporting on cases of terrorism around the world. After Ayliffe-Chung’s death appeared in White House’s list of 78 underreported terror attacks, Ayliffe posted on Facebook:

According to CNN, 21-year-old Ayliffe-Chung was stabbed to death with fellow backpacker Tom Jackson back in August. Australia police almost instantly ruled out terrorism as a motive of the murders. Ayliffe’s Facebook post stated:
Treating immigrants as disposable commodities and disregarding their safety causes deaths throughout our so-called civilized world…I have lived and worked in the Islamic world for a number of years … Mia traveled in Turkey and Morocco too, albeit too briefly.
