Dozens of foreign ISIS brides have been sentenced to death in Iraq. The women were given 10 mins to beg for their lives before judges decided their sentence

French jihadist Djamila Boutoutaou attends her trial at the central penal court in Baghdad, on April 17, 2018. She was sentenced to life in prison for belonging to the Islamic State group, the latest in a series of court judgments against jihadists.DOZENS of foreign ISIS brides are being sentenced to death in Iraq as the country exacts its revenge after three years of jihadi occupation.

Pleading that they themselves are victims, the women were given 10 minutes to beg for their lives before judges decided their sentence.

Many of them find little sympathy with the Iraqi judiciary and locals and are despised for their support of their militant husbands, who tore the country apart between 2014 and 2017.

French citizen Djamila Boutoutao, 29, appeared in court last month and claimed: โ€œI thought I had married a rapper. It was only when we arrived in Turkey for a week-long โ€˜holidayโ€™ that I discovered my husband was a jihadist.โ€

Fossil find of 33-million-year-old sea lilies in outback WA challenges major palaeontology theory

Two star-like fossils on the left and a longer tube of fused fossil materialThe discovery of hundreds of sea lily fossils in a dusty riverbed near Exmouth in north-west Western Australia has rewritten the species’ history book by millions of years.

Sea lilies, or crinoids, are the lesser known cousins of sea stars and sea urchins.

Members for the echinoderm family, sea lilies anchor themselves to the ocean floor by their stalk and have frond-like tentacles.

“For more of the Earth’s history โ€” we’re talking well over 500 million years โ€” they were one of the most dominant and common things in the sea,” University of WA (UWA) research fellow Aaron Hunter said.

Sea lilies were previously thought to have become extinct from the shallow seas that covered the southern hemisphere about 66 million years ago.

However, the ancient marine fossil record โ€” preserved in rock inland from Exmouth โ€” suggests sea lilies survived in shallow waters until 33 million years ago.

This challenges palaeontologists’ current theory of marine life evolution in the southern hemisphere.

#Perth Stadium’s Matagarup Bridge suffers yet another setback and in doubt for key AFL clash

Matagarup Bridge near Perth Stadium under construction on a bright sunny day, with arches and towers stretching skywards.The much-anticipated opening of the pedestrian footbridge connecting East Perth to the new Perth Stadium has once again been delayed.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti has confirmed the May target would not be met, with the 370-metre long Matagarup Bidge now expected to open at the end of June.

She said there was “still a chance” the bridge would be ready in time for the stadium’s first Thursday night game, on June 21.

That clash between the West Coast Eagles and Essendon is expected to attract a large crowd โ€” and with a bouncedown time of just after 6:00pm, peak hour traffic could be affected.

The remains of a private jet after it crashed in Honduras.Crew and passengers are all alive after a private jet traveling from Austin, Texas, crashed off the end of the runway of the Honduran capital’s international airport and broke in half.

Video images posted online showed what appeared to be Tegucigalpa residents pulling people out of the damaged fuselage of the white Gulfstream jet, while others sprayed it with hand-held fire extinguishers.
