After her father, chief of Morocco's armed forces, was executed in 1972 for attempting to assassinate the king, Malika Oufkir and her mother and siblings were arrested and imprisoned for many years under harsh conditions. They were finally released in 1991. She emigrated to France, wrote a bestselling book about her experiences, and became an advocate for the rights of political prisoners.
