A Baghdad court has convicted the sister of the former leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq who was killed in 2010 and sentenced her to death on terrorism charges, a spokesman said Thursday.Thursday's statement by Bayrkdar initially said the convicted woman was the sister Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the reclusive leader of Daesh (ISIS), but the spokesman later issued a correction, saying she is Abu Omar al-Baghdadi's sister.Al-Qaeda in Iraq was the parent group from which Daesh emerged.Iraq declared victory over Daesh last December, after driving the militants from northern and central Iraq.
