Jordan has executed two convicts, including a failed female suicide bomber, following the killing of one of its air force pilots by Islamic State militants.
According to a BBC report, officials said the female suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi, and al-Qaeda operative Ziyad Karboli – both Iraqi nationals – were hanged at dawn.
The executions came hours after IS posted a video appearing to show pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being burned alive.
He was seized after crashing during an anti-IS mission over Syria in December.
Jordan had attempted to secure Lt Kasasbeh’s release in a swap involving Rishawi.
She had been on death row for her role in attacks in Jordan’s capital, Amman, which killed 60 people in 2005.
Karboli was convicted in 2008 for killing a Jordanian national.
The two prisoners were executed at 04:00 local time (02:00 GMT), government spokesman Mohammad al-Momani said on Wednesday morning.
Jordan earlier vowed an “earth-shattering” response after IS posted a video online showing what militants say is the pilot standing in a cage engulfed in flames.
Mamdouh al-Ameri, a spokesman for the Jordanian armed forces, said on Tuesday that Lt Kasasbeh had “fallen as a martyr”.
“His blood will not be shed in vain. Our punishment and revenge will be as huge as the loss of the Jordanians.”
