al-Zarqawi Sentenced to Death in Jordan

A Jordanian “court on Wednesday sentenced the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and eight other men to death for plotting chemical attacks against sites in Jordan, including the U.S. Embassy,” reports the Associated Press. “Al-Zarqawi and three others were sentenced to death in absentia. But the plot’s alleged mastermind, Azmi al-Jayousi, and four co-defendants were in the courtroom when the judge handed down the sentence for the 2004 plot, which security officials foiled before it could be carried out.”
