In January, the court sentenced a German woman to death for joining the extremist group and providing it logistical support that helped the group to commit their criminal acts.

"I entered Syria with my French passport but Daesh (IS) took it from me". She reportedly had stayed in Syria for 4 days before journeying on to Mosul, where she remained until her capture.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Donald Trump does not want to "make the same mistakes" that were made in 2011, when US forces left Iraq.

"A judicial source said the sentencing of the women by a three-judge panel had followed weeks or even months of questioning". She was arrested in Mosul after Iraqi forces recaptured the city.
