Iraqi Court Sentence German Woman To Death

A court in Baghdad has sentenced a German woman to death after she confirms she had travelled from Germany to Iraqi for the sole purpose of joining ISIS with her two daughters.

The court said the unnamed German woman was "providing logistical support and assistance to the terrorist group to commit crimes" after she joined ISIS, and her two daughters reportedly married ISIS militants. The woman of Moroccan descent was believed to be living in the Manheim region before she travelled, and believed to be part of the women that were captured by the Iraqi forces after the forces regained Mosul from the Daesh group.

Another German, Linda Wenzel was also with the group, and had fled to Syria when she was only 15. She is also facing the death penalty if convicted of aiding ISIS. She was reported to have aided ISIS, and also was a sniper for the terrorist group, but she had denied the claims, and said she was mostly kept for domestic works only.
