ISIS marriage contracts revealed in Libya

23d3e4bdf5eaf64e363474d8a86f9f04(AhlulBayt News Agency) – ISIS group marriage contracts unearthed by pro-government forces battling the group in Libya reveal that the militants offered their brides unusual dowries: machine-guns and explosive belts.

Forces allied with the country’s unity government discovered the archives as they searched buildings seized during their months-long battle to oust ISIS from its coastal bastion of Sirte.

The documents belonged to the militants’ “Judicial and Complaints Department”.

Published on pro-government forces’ Facebook pages, they include marriage contracts and divorce rulings without any real name or personal information.

In one example from 31 November, 2015, Abu Mansour, a Tunisian born in 1977, married a Nigerian called Miriam, in the presence of Sudanese and Malian witnesses.
