Muslim terrorist who killed British tourist is one of 10 prisoners hanged at dawn as Jordan hits back at ISIS

A gunman convicted of firing at a group of Western tourists in Amman in 2006, killing one Briton is among 15 people executed on Saturday by Jordan.

Christopher Stokes, from Littleborough near Rochdale, was killed in September 2006 when gunman Nabeel Ahmed Issa al-Jaourah opened fire in a Roman amphitheatre in Amman.

Al-Jaourah had been sentenced to death in December 2006 when he was found guilty of the murders in a Jordanian court.

    King Hussein continues to impress, even though he follows the evil religion.

      Well, it is only the West that refuses to sentence any of them to death. Goodness, even killing them in a gun fight too often results in the soldier being put on trial.

        The king is from that world and understands that only severe justice makes the point among the muslim hordes.

    It’s a sad reflection on the Western world that we can’t even manage to do something as simple and obvious as hanging terrorists.
