Breaking New: Jordan Execute 1 Al-Qaida Prisoner & ISIS Prisoner By Hanging


A government spokesman says Jordan executed 2 prisoners, hours after vowing a harsh response to the gruesome killing of a Jordanian pilot captured by the Islamic State extremist group.
Jordan threatened a harsh response after a video released online Tuesday showed the pilot being burned to death.

Word of the latest two executions came after a Jordanian security official told Associated Press that it would execute an al-Qaida prisoner at dawn Wednesday,. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue with the media.

Identities of the two executed prisoners in Jordanian hands were not immediately available.
Before dawn, a convoy was seen leaving Juweideh prison where prisoner Sajida al-Rishawi had been held. The convoy arrived at Swaqa prison, where executions have been carried out.
