Iraq hands life sentences to five, including Iranian, for killing US civilian

BAGHDAD — An Iraqi court has sentenced an Iranian and four Iraqis to life in prison for the murder of US civilian Stephen Troell in Baghdad last November, judicial sources say.

Baghdad’s Karkh court “sentenced five people to life imprisonment, one of Iranian nationality and four Iraqis,” a judicial source tells AFP on condition of anonymity.

The five men had “confessed” to the shooting murder and said that their intention had been to kidnap Troell for ransom, not to kill him, the source says.
