Iraq sentenced more than 600 foreigners including many women and dozens of minors in 2018 for their alleged links to the Islamic State. 


More than 300 suspects linked to IS had received death sentences and more than 300 others were sentenced to life, which in Iraq is equivalent to 20 years.


Judicial spokesman Abdel Sattar Bayraqdar said today that more than 600 men and women accused of belonging to IS have been put on trial in 2018 and sentenced under Iraq's anti-terrorism law.


Iraq declared victory over IS at the end of 2017 after a three-year war against the IS terrorists, who once controlled nearly a third of the country as well as swathes of neighbouring Syria.


Around 20,000 people suspected of links to IS have been arrested since 2014.
