An Iraqi court sentenced seven key Islamic State (IS) leaders to death as they were found guilty of killing scores of innocent people in Nineveh.
Speaking to the official al-Sabah newspaper, judge Mohamed al-Badrani of the Nineveh Criminal Court said: “Seven IS leaders were handed down death sentences as they were convicted of killing 200 civilian people in Nineveh.”
The genocide took place after the IS militants took control of the vital city of Mosul on June 10, 2014, according to the judge.
Badrani pointed out that his court is still interrogating over “400 IS militants, who have been recently arrested and brought to trial,” adding that the court will issue sentences against them soon.
