Iraq executed 11 men convicted of charges related to "terrorism" on Thursday, the justice ministry said, just days after another mass execution of 26 convicts.
"The ministry executed 11 people today, after they were convicted of terrorism charges," it said in a statement. "The total of those executed this week is now 37, all of them Iraqis."
Iraq has continued its use of capital punishment despite widespread international condemnation, particularly from the United Nations, the European Union, and human rights groups.
