    BAGHDAD, Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- An Iraqi court sentenced three Iraqis to death on Tuesday after finding them guilty for involving in a deadly truck bombing that killed dozens of people in June in northern Iraq.

    "The criminal court sentenced Hawas Manie Salih, Adnan Jassim Ali and Walid Mahmoud Mohammed to death by hanging for the blast in Taza in Kirkuk province in June," the Iraqi Interior Ministry said in a statement.

    The three were arrested by the ministry several months ago and were interrogated before sending them to the court, the statement said without giving further details.

    On June 20, a truck rigged with explosives detonated in the predominantly Shiite Turkmen town of Taza, 30 kilometers south of Kirkuk, killing 81 people and wounding 300 others, along with destroying dozens of houses.
