IS executes woman reporter in Iraq

Baghdad,  (IANS/AKI) Islamic State (IS) militants have executed a female journalist in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul for “spying” after holding her captive, local broadcaster Rudaw reported on Tuesday, citing an Iraqi media watchdog.

Rudaw did not state how Suha Ahmed Radi was put to death, but said IS militants held her captive “for days” after detaining her during a raid on her home east of Mosul, according to the Iraqi Journalists Syndicate.

An IS shariah court charged Radi with spying and she was sentenced to death in the Al-Daki neighbourhood in the west of Mosul, the IJS said, quoted by Rudaw.

Radi’s body was handed over to her family, Rudaw said, citing the IJS.

She worked for a newspaper in Mosul, which IS overran in June last year.

Fourteen journalists have been executed in Mosul since the city came under IS control, the IJS said.
