The daughter of the late Malcolm X was found dead in her Brooklyn home Monday night, police sources said.

Malikah Shabazz, 56, who with twin Malaak were the youngest of six daughters of Malcolm X and wife Betty Shabazz, was found by her daughter Bettih-Bahiyah Shabazz, 23, in the home they shared on E. 28th St., sources said.

The death was ruled not suspicious.

Malaak and Malikah were born seven months after their human rights and civil rights activist father was assassinated Feb. 21, 1965.
