Iraq sentenced a French woman to life in prison for belonging to ISIS on Tuesday.

 Iraq sentenced a French woman to life in prison for belonging to the ISIS group, the latest in a series of court rulings since the country's defeat of ISIS.

Djamila Boutoutaou, a 29-year-old of Algerian origin, told a Baghdad court that she had left France with her husband, he was a rapper.

She said she thought they were going on holiday but when I arrived in Turkey I discovered that my husband was a ISIS member.

She said she was forced by her husband to join ISIS and live in the "caliphate" that the ISIS proclaimed in 2014 straddling Syria and Iraq.

She added, her husband was killed near the former ISIS stronghold of Mosul, northern Iraq, and her son died in bombardment.

In January, an Iraqi court condemned a German woman to life in prison after finding her guilty of belonging to ISIS.

A court the following month sentenced another French woman to seven months in jail for entering Iraq illegally but ordered her release on time already served.

Several dozen Turkish women have been sentenced to jail under Iraqi anti-terrorism laws.
