No word on Kenji Goto: Deadline passes, Jordan still holds prisoner demanded by Islamic State

AMMAN/TOKYO (Reuters) - Jordan said on Thursday it was still holding an Iraqi would-be suicide bomber as a deadline passed for her release set by Islamic State militants who threatened to kill a Jordanian pilot unless she was handed over by sunset. An audio message purportedly from a Japanese journalist also captured by the insurgents said the pilot would be killed unless Jordan freed Sajida al-Rishawi, who is on death row for her role in a 2005 suicide bomb attack that killed 60 people in Amman #Abe #Amman #IS #islamic-state #Japa #Jordan #Kenji #NewsTracker #pilot #Tokyo
