Finland presses charges against twins for alleged murders done in Iraq
HELSINKI, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Finnish assistant state prosecutor Raija Toiviainen decided to raise murder charges against two Iraqi nationals, the state prosecutor's office announced on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old twins were detained by Finnish police in December last year. They allegedly participated in the mass killings around Camp Speicher in Iraq in June 2014.
Over 1,000 Iraqi soldiers were said to have been killed by the Islamic State in the incidents.
The charges defined the deeds as war crimes and actions with terrorist intent. The state prosecutor's office said on Wednesday that raising the charges in Finland is based on international agreements.[ Editor: meng ]
