An Iraqi court on Wednesday sentenced 24 men to death by hanging over the June 2014 massacre by jihadist and allied militants of hundreds of mostly Shiite recruits in Tikrit.

The central criminal court in Baghdad handed 24 of 28 defendants the maximum sentence over the "Speicher" massacre, named after the base from which the victims were captured before being executed.
