Kut Appeal Court on Sunday sentenced a police officer to death over involvement in killing protesters, a day after Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi submitted his resignation to the parliament.

The court also handed another officer a seven-year imprisonment.

The parliament on Sunday accepted the resignation of Abd al-Mahdi. Saairun, parliament’s largest bloc, says it would not nominate a candidate for the prime minister post and will leave the choice to people.
