AMMAN, Jordan -Two militants were executed by hanging on Saturday for the killing in Amman of a U.S. diplomat.

Laurence Foley, a 60-year-old administrator of U.S. aid programs in Jordan, was gunned down outside his Amman home on Oct. 28, 2002.

Jordanian authorities have blamed al Qaida in Iraq’s top operative, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, for Foley’s death.
