Iraqi court sentences life in prison to German, French citizens over involvement with IS

An Iraqi court sentenced a French man and a German woman to life in prison on Monday after finding them guilty of belonging to Islamic State. The sentences can be appealed.

The sentences were read out in Iraq's Central Criminal Court, with the judge saying he found French citizen Lahcen Ammar Gueboudj, 55, and German citizen Nadia Rainer Hermann, 22, guilty of joining the hardline militant group.

Hermann had previously been sentenced to a year in jail for entering Iraq illegally. Embassy staff and translators from both countries were in attendance.
