Relatives of a Kyrgyzstani, Asel Asilzhan kyzy, sentenced to death in Iraq, ask to save her. A human rights activist Gulshaiyr Abdirasulova told 24.kg news agency.

«According to media reports, three citizens of Kyrgyzstan are in prison in Iraq — Asel Asilzhan kyzy, Zukhra Kadirova and Fatima Marufzhanova. All of them are relatives. Brother of Asel Asilzhan kyzy turned to me for help. He asks to extradite her to Kyrgyzstan and save her from execution. I publicly applied to state agencies, we are waiting for a response,» said Gulshaiyr Abdirasulova.

Three Kyrgyz citizens with ten young children are in a women’s prison and are awaiting a sentence from the Baghdad court. The women are accused of terrorism and illegal crossing of the state border of Iraq. They were taken to the Middle East by their husbands, who joined the Islamic State terrorist group, and after their death they were abandoned to their fate.
