All in the Family: Sajida’s Story Update

Apparently after all this interrogation a few more details have come to light about these bombers.

Sajida, as reported by the Associated Press, was not captured in Amman but rather in Al-Salt.

Prime Minister Adnan Badran said that after the failed detonation, Sajida Mubarak al-Rishawi fled to a furnished apartment that she and the other three Iraqis involved in the suicide attacks had rented in Amman’s suburbs.

“She (later) went on to Salt because one of her relatives” lived there, Badran told reporters.

While in Salt, “they reported about her and she was seized there,” he added. He could not say whether it was her relatives who reported her to authorities

Although it appears those relatives are being “interrogated for possible strong links” the bombings…

“She went to seek Jordanian relatives of a sister who had married a Jordanian militant who died in Iraq and we are now interrogating people who contacted her,” one source said.

The source, who asked not to be named, did not say how many people had been detained as suspects in Salt.


Sajida had three brothers who were captured by American Forces in Iraq and killed.

Other sources have disclosed a further link to the Iraq insurgency, saying the would-be bomber’s Jordanian brother-in-law, an explosives expert with experience in Afghanistan, had died fighting U.S. troops in Iraq….

Other sources meanwhile disclosed that Sajida’s sister had been married to a Jordanian explosives expert, Nidal Mohammad Arabiyat, also killed by U.S. forces in Iraq.


  • The only american she killed was Mostapha al Aqqad.

    And what exactly did she do?? She left Iraq and came to kill americans in jordan?? So she had to fight them here so she wouldn’t have to fight them there??

    Walla it’s a crazy world.
