Jordan's military court convicted six alleged militants of planning suicide attacks against Jordan's main international airport. The six, who included three fugitives not present at the trial, received jail terms ranging from 15 years to life with hard labor. A seventh man, 48-year-old Iraqi Abdul-Karim Ikhdeir al-Jmeily, was acquitted for lack of evidence. The guilty verdicts can be appealed. The seven were all non-Jordanians and included five Iraqis, a Libyan and a Saudi. They were also charged with allegedly planning attacks on Israeli and American tourists in hotels on the Dead Sea and the Red Sea port of Aqaba, and with illegal possession of explosives.
