Jordan to deny US request to extradite Sbarro bombing attack terrorist

Jordan will not approve a US request to extradite Hamas-affiliated terrorist Ahlam Tamimi, who the US wanted to try for killing Americans during the Second Intifada, Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad reported on Thursday.

 

Citing several reasons for Jordan's alleged refusal, Al-Ghad reported that Jordanian legal officials have said that the extradition was "not permissible" based on the fact that Tamimi was already tried in Israel and mostly because there is no existing extradition treaty between the US and Jordan.
