Jordanian Soldier Sentenced To Life In Killing Of 3 American Troops

Jordanian judges preside over the trial on Monday of Marik al-Tuwayha, charged with the murder of three American military trainers. The military court in Amman found Tuwayha guilty of shooting the trainers as they waited to enter the King Faisal base at Al-Jafr in southern Jordan in November 2016.

The soldier said he opened fire on the American convoy because they failed to stop at the gate outside a Jordanian air base. He was convicted by a Jordanian military court.
