KABUL: (Middle East Press) Jordan has executed two prisoners, including a would-be female suicide bomber from al-Qaida, said a Jordanian government spokesman.

Government spokesman Mohammed al-Momani said that two prisoners, Sajida al-Rishawi and Ziad al-Karbouli, were executed early Wednesday.

The executions at dawn Wednesday came just hours after ISIL militants released a video that showed a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive in a metal cage.

Jordan vowed a swift and lethal response.
