Two Sentenced to Die for ‘Terror Attack’ in Iraq’s Anbar

On Monday Two Iraqis were sentenced to death after being convicted earlier of killing 12 civilians in Iraq’s western Anbar province.

According to a spokesman for Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council Abdul-Sattar Bayrakdar, a criminal court sentenced the pair to death earlier for killing 12 civilians in Anbar’s Al-Jazeera district in what the court described as a “terrorist attack”.

A third person was slapped with life behind bars for taking part in a separate attack in Diyala province. The defendants now have 30 days to appeal the sentences before Iraq’s Federal Court of Cassation.
