Iraq court hands Sunni VP 2nd death sentence

Published: 11.01.12, 15:08 / Israel News

An Iraqi court has convicted the country's Sunni vice president on charges of instigating bodyguards to assassinate a senior government official and sentenced him to death.

 

Thursday's verdict was the second death sentence for Tariq al-Hashemi in less than two months, both delivered in absentia since he is in exile in Turkey. Al-Hashemi fled Iraq in December 2011, when the Shiite led-government accused him of playing a role in numerous attacks. (AP)
