Jordan's highest court rejected an appeal by an Iraqi woman sentenced to death for her role in the al-Qaida-led triple hotel bombing that killed 60 people in Jordan's worst terror attack, according to court documents obtained Saturday. Sajida al-Rishawi, 35, was intended to be one of the suicide bombers in the Nov. 9, 2005 attack. She entered a hotel ballroom with her husband, both strapped with explosives belts. Her husband set off his belt, ripping through a wedding party in the room. Initially, al-Rishawi said in a televised confession that her own belt failed to detonate and she fled, but she later told her trial that she was an unwilling participant in the attacks and never tried to set off her blast.
