Sajida al-Rishawi left no will before Jordan executed her: report
Sajida al-Rishawi, whose release had been demanded by ISIS, kept quiet when a Jordanian judge asked her if she wanted to leave any will prior to her execution
The jailed Iraqi woman militant, whose release had been demanded by ISIS, kept quiet when a Jordanian judge asked her if she wanted to leave any will prior to her execution in retaliation for the Islamist group not upholding their deal to return the Jordanian pilot in a swap for her, instead later burning him to death.
But despite Sajida al-Rishawi’s initial silence, the local Ammon News reported sources as saying Wednesday, that she replied with a “yes,” when asked if she wanted to leave the remainder of her money to her family.
Rishawi was executed at around 4:45 a.m. local time on Wednesday. She had been sentenced to death for her role in a 2005 suicide bomb attack that killed 60 people.
At 4:30 a.m., the Jordanian authorities also executed Ziyad Karboli, an Iraqi Al-Qaeda operative, convicted in 2008 of killing a Jordanian.
Karboli, who begged the judge to start reconciliation with the family of the Jordanian man he killed, said he wanted to send his regards to his parents and also wished to give the money he had to them.
