An Iraqi court on Monday ordered the release of a French female jihadist sentenced to seven months in prison for entering the country illegally, saying she had already served her time.
Iraqi authorities on Monday ordered Bougedir's deportation upon her release.
Speaking in Arabic, Bougedir told the court that she had entered Iraq in October 2015 from Syria. She said her French husband was killed as Iraqi forces battled to oust the jihadist group from Mosul, which was recaptured last July after three years of IS group rule.
Rebuilding Mosul will be 'an extremely long and complicated process'
