Iraq court sentences French woman to life for Daesh membership


BAGHDAD: An Iraqi court on Saturday sentenced a French woman to life in jail for membership of the Daesh group, an AFP reporter at the courthouse said.

Melina Boughedir was sentenced last February to seven months in prison for “illegal” entry into the country and was set to be deported back to France, but another court ordered her re-trial under Iraq’s anti-terrorist law.

She was found guilty on Sunday of belonging to Daesh.
