Jordan executes two al Qaeda activists
Two men were executed by hanging on Saturday for the killing in Amman of an American diplomat. Laurence Foley, a 60-year-old administrator of U.S. aid programs in Jordan, was assassinated outside his Amman house on Oct. 28, 2002.
According to the AP, Jordanian authorities have blamed al Qaeda in Iraq's leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, for Foley's murder.
The two are Salem bin Suweid, a Libyan, and Yasser Freihat, a Jordanian.
