The letter below was received by Lisa Brown, mother of Christopher Vialva, who was executed by the federal government in September 2020 . Lisa was present and witnessed the execution. Sure, this is probably a part of the protocol, but its lack of recognition that she was there, and the very idea that they care one bit if anyone has questions or concerns, is just one more inconsiderate and insensitive jab at the families of the condemned...

Iraq | Mother sentenced to death for throwing her 2 toddlers into Tigris River for revenge

A three-year-old and his two-year-old sister were thrown off a bridge and into the Tigris river by their mother in the Iraqi capital this week.

An Iraqi woman stirred outrage across the country after killing her 2 children when she threw them off a bridge into the Tigris River

An Iraqi court on Thursday sentenced a woman “to death twice” for deliberately throwing her 2 children off a bridge into the Tigris River in an act of revenge against her husband, according to a report published on the Iraqi News Agency (INA).

Surveillance cameras captured the horrific moments of the double murder in October 2020. 

The woman, who was arrested shortly after committing the heinous crime, was seen walking along the bridge with her children at night before throwing them in, one by one.

The video went viral on social media platforms as soon as it was broadcasted, causing outrage among Iraqis.

In the footage, the convict is seen swiftly grabbing her children one at a time and then proceeding to drop them into the river off Al-Aimmah Bridge, north of the capital, Baghdad, before calmly walking away from the crime scene.

The bodies of the 3-year-old boy and his 2-year-old sister were later recovered by rescue teams.

The crime shook the nation, with many calling on authorities to implement the harshest punishment against the mother who confessed to her actions.

According to local reports, the mother committed the crime out of hatred of her ex-husband, who allegedly gained custody of their 2-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter following their divorce trial in late September.

The woman will be executed by hanging, the report added.
