Jordan's State Security Court on Thursday sentenced a Jordanian man to death for his attack against foreign tourists in Amman earlier this year, which left one British tourist dead and six others injured.
The state prosecutor has officially charged Nabil Ahmad Issa Jaaoura, 38, a Jordanian man of Palestinian origin, with carrying out terrorist attacks with an unlicensed gun.
According to the charge sheet, Jaaoura had been plotting to kill foreigners to avenge the death of his two brothers during Israeli attacks on Lebanon in 1982, to which purpose he bought a gun five years ago.
On Sept. 4, Jaaoura shot at a group of foreign tourists and their tour guide in Amman's Roman Amphitheater, killing a British man and wounding six others.
The court convicted him and sentenced him to hang.
