The criminal court in Baghdad's Karh district has handed down a death sentence by hanging to a criminal guilty of killing Iraqi Yazidi citizens, according to a statement on the website of Iraq's Supreme Judicial Council.

"The perpetrator, along with members of his military unit, executed several Yazidi citizens and buried them after filming their execution on video and posting the videos on social media sites linked to terrorist groups, and participated in attacks on security forces in Nineveh and Salah al-Din provinces. The court ordered the execution of the criminal by hanging on the basis of articles of the Anti-Terrorism Law of 2005", - stated in the message of the council.

In the summer of 2014, militants of the terrorist organisation "Islamic State" invaded the district of Sinjar in north-western Iraq, where they began to kill the Yazidis living there. They also kidnapped more than five thousand women and children, hundreds of whom remain missing.
