The body of an Iraqi woman who died after being beaten in the US is to be flown back to Iraq for burial.

Shaima Alawadi, a 32-year-old mother, was found badly beaten in her San Diego home on Wednesday. She died on Sunday, when her family was forced to end the life support she was on.

A note found next to her body allegedly read: "Go back to your country, you terrorist."

California police are investigating her death as a possible hate crime.
