An Iraqi court has sentenced three men to death by hanging over detonating an explosive charge at a Shiite religious shrine in Baghdad.

“The Central Criminal Court looked into the case of three defendants involved in bombing a Shiite shrine in Baghdad, an attack which left scores of visitors dead,” Al Madar News quoted the Supreme Judicial Council as saying in a press statement on Sunday.

“The trio admitted forming a terrorist cell with the aim of targeting innocent people,” the statement read, adding that the death sentences handed down on the three men were issued pursuant to article no. 4 of the anti-terrorism law.

Iraq’s anti-terrorism law empowers courts to convict people who are believed to have helped jihadists even if they are not accused of carrying out attacks.
