Iraq: 300+ Given Death Penalty for Daesh Links
Local Editor

Iraqi courts sentenced to death a total of more than 300 people, including dozens of foreigners, for belonging to Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group], judicial sources said Wednesday.

The suspects are being tried by two courts, one near the former extremist stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq and another in the capital Baghdad which is dealing notably with foreigners and women.

Since January in Baghdad, 97 foreign nationals have been condemned to death and 185 to life in prison, according to a judicial source.

Most of the women sentenced were from Turkey and republics of the former Soviet Union.

In January, an Iraqi court sentenced a German woman to death after finding her guilty of belonging to Daesh while on Tuesday a French woman was sentenced to life in prison.

At the court In Tel Keif near Mosul, 212 people have been sentenced to death, 150 to life in prison and 341 to other jails terms, Supreme Judicial Council spokesman Abdel Sattar Bayraqdar said in a statement.

Iraq declared victory over Daesh back in December, which at one point controlled a third of the country.
