The special criminal court in Anbar province on Thursday (November 8th) sentenced "the al-Qaeda wali in Anbar province" and two of his aides to death, Iraqi police said.
The defendants were convicted of their involvement in terrorist attacks between 2006 and 2010.
"The court convicted the defendants based on evidence and after the accused were confronted with witnesses," Anbar police chief Maj. Gen. Hadi Kassar Erzaij told Al-Shorfa. "In addition, the police arrested them red-handed as they carried out a terrorist operation at the end of last year."
Malath Nasser, an attorney appointed by the families of the victims, said the "wali", Daoud Ali, and his aides Mazen al-Dulaimi and Nameer Abd confessed to belonging to al-Qaeda.
