Amman would be bomber sentenced to death
Seven people were sentenced to death Thursday for triple hotel bombings that killed 60 people in Jordan's capital last November.
According to the AP, the only one in custody was a 35-year-old Iraqi woman, Sajida al-Rishawi, who confessed on Jordanian television shortly after the attacks. Six others, including another Iraqi woman, were sentenced in abstentia, and remain at large.
The late al-Qaeda in Iraq chief, Jordanian-born Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, was also tried as a fugitive, but the Jordanian military court dismissed his case after his death in a U.S. airstrike.
