Amman has executed two prisoners, including the Al-Qaeda would-be suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, after promising a lethal response to the brutal murder of a Jordanian pilot who had been captured by the Islamic State.

Government spokesman Mohammed al-Momani identified the second prisoner as Ziad al-Karbouli, AP reported, adding that both executions took place early on Wednesday.

Earlier, Jordan vowed to execute failed suicide bomber Al-Rishawi “within hours”, as revenge for the execution of hostage pilot Moath al-Kasasbeh by Islamic State, a security official told AFP. Amman offered to swap the two prisoners, but the talks eventually failed.
