Prisoner held in Jordan to be executed tomorrow

Jordan will execute an Iraqi female jihadist on Wednesday, says a security official. The prisoner is a woman sought by Islamic State in exchange for a Jordanian pilot that was executed by being burned alive. A video of his brutal killing was released this evening, but it is unclear when the event took place.

Sajida al-Rishawi was given a death sentence for her involvement in al-Qaeda terror attacks in Amman in 2005. “The death sentence against Iraqi Sajida al-Rishawi will be executed tomorrow at dawn,” a Jordanian security official tells AFP.
