A handout picture released by Jordan’s official Petra news agency on April 24, 2006 shows Sajida al-Rishawi , a would-be Iraqi female suicide bomber, standing in a cell at the State Security court during her trial in the Jordanian capital Amman. Jordan executed two death-row jihadists including the Iraqi woman militant on February 4, 2015 after vowing to avenge the burning alive of one of its fighter pilots by the Islamic State group. Would-be Iraqi female suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi and Iraqi Al-Qaeda member Ziad al-Karboli were hanged at 4:00 am (0200 GMT), government spokesman Mohammad al-Momani said.
