The Anbar criminal court on Tuesday (September 25th) sentenced four al-Qaeda members to death by hanging and two others to life in prison, the Iraqi Interior Ministry said.

The defendants confessed to the September 2011 execution-style killing of 22 male bus passengers in al-Nakheeb, Anbar province, said Col. Hikmat Mahmoud al-Masari, director of media and relations at the ministry.

“During their trial, the convicts confessed to committing the crime for purely terrorist motives,” he said.
