Ties with IS: Iraq sentences 15 Turkish women to death

BAGHDAD: An Iraqi criminal court Sunday sentenced to death 15 Turkish women after finding them guilty of belonging to the Islamic State group, a judicial official said.

Another Turkish woman accused of membership of the militant group was given a life sentence, the official said, adding they had all acknowledged the charges against them.
Iraq, which has detained at least 560 women, as well as 600 children, identified as militants or relatives of suspected IS fighters, is wasting no time in putting them on trial.
In January, a court sentenced a German woman to death on charges of providing logistical support to IS, and a Turkish woman was earlier this month also handed the death penalty.
Human Rights Watch denounced the rulings as “unfair”.
