Iraqi Central Criminal Court on Tuesday sentenced a Belgian jihadist, who threatened Europe in propaganda videos, to death by hanging for membership of Daesh group.
Tarik Jadaoun, as known as Abu Hamza al-Beljiki was born in 1988. He was captured in ex-Daesh bastion Mosul in August.
He appeared before the Baghdad court and the hearing lasted for less than 10 minutes, with a judge sentencing him to be "hanged until death" and he now has 30 days to appeal the verdict.
