Jordan sentences 3 citizens to death for IS-linked bombing attacks
A Jordanian court sentences three people to death by hanging on charges of belonging to the Islamic State group and staging two bombing attacks, an AFP correspondent says.
A total of 11 people are handed sentences in the same case, relating to attacks in 2018 that killed six members of the Jordanian security forces.
The court condemns three to death, including one in absentia, over accusations of “involvement in terrorist acts using weapons and explosives that led to the death of one person.” The remaining convicts were handed prison sentences ranging between five and 20 years.
Three others, including two women, are acquitted and released.
