An Iraqi court has sentenced a French woman to life in jail for membership of the Islamic State jihadist group.

Melina Boughedir was sentenced last February to seven months in prison for "illegal" entry into the country and was set to be deported back to France, but another court ordered her re-trial under Iraq's anti-terrorist law. She was found guilty on Sunday of belonging to IS.
