The female suicide bomber ISIS wants has been freed in return for Japanese hostage.
According to media reports, ISIS the kidnappers of Kenji Goto say they will exchange him for Sajida al-Rishawi, who has been held in a Jordanian jail since 2005. She is the one ISIS demanded to be freed from the Jordanian jail, in return for Japanese Christian hostage Kenji Goto. Freed woman Sajida has family ties with Iraq’s most violent militant groups. This 44 year-old is a failed suicide bomber who travelled to Jordan from Ramadi in Iraq in 2005.
Sajida has been on death row in Jordan since long before Islamic State militant group was created. Kenji Goto, the hostage held by ISIS asked for the prisoner swap in an ISIS audio tape released at the weekend, when he referred to her as the group’s “imprisoned sister”. “It is simple. You give them Sajida and I will be released,” Goto said on the video.
