Jordan will execute failed suicide bomber Sajida Al-Rishawi “within hours”, as revenge for the ISIS killing of hostage pilot Moath al-Kasasbeh, a security official told AFP. Earlier, Jordan offered to swap the two prisoners.

“The revenge will be as big as the calamity that has hit Jordan,” army spokesman Colonel Mamdouh al Ameri said in a televised statement as cited by Reuters, after a video surface of the pilot being burned alive. A government spokesman promised a “strong, earth-shaking and decisive” response to the execution.

King Abdullah II has cut short his visit to the US, while the country has declared three days of mourning for the “martyr and hero” al-Kasasbeh, who was taken hostage after his plane came down during a bombing raid on IS positions on December 24.
