Jordanian Soldier Convicted of Killing 3 US Troops

Content by: Voice of America

A Jordanian military court has convicted a soldier of killing three U.S. military trainers in a shooting last year.

The court announced its verdict Monday, sentencing Marik al-Tuwayha to life in prison with hard labor.

The Jordanian had pleaded not guilty. His lawyer said the defense respects the court's decision, but that the verdict will be appealed.

The shooting happened in November at the gates of a Jordanian military base.
