Court sentences two terrorists to death over murder of security men

Iraq's Central Criminal Court
The Central Criminal Court of Iraq sentenced two terrorists to death on Thursday after proven guilty of being involved in the killing of security forces in Diyala Governorate, eastern Iraq.

The sentences were issued pursuant to article no. 4 of the anti-terrorism law, according to a statement by the media office of the court.

The statement further added that the convicts confessed to attacking and killing many army and police personnel in Miqdadiyah and Buhriz districts in Diyala.

Iraq’s anti-terrorism law empowers courts to convict people who are believed to have helped jihadists even if they are not accused of carrying out attacks.
