Sajida al-rishawi gained notoriety in 2005 after confessing on Jordanian television that she tried to blow herself up alongside her husband in an Al Qaeda attack in Amman, Jordan.

The failed suicide bomber's chilling confession came after she was arrested when her bomb belt failed to detonate at the Radisson Hotel, a building commonly frequented by diplomats.

Appearing in a headscarf and a long black coat, she said: 'We went into the hotel. He (my husband) took a corner and I took another.

'My husband executed the attack. I tried to detonate and it failed. People started running and I ran with them.'

Rishawi's husband and two other suicide bombers belonging to Al Qaeda in Iraq killed themselves and 60 other people in the three simultaneous attacks at the Hyatt, Radisson and Days Inn hotels.

Following her capture and confession, she was sentenced to death.

Despite later retracting the confession and appealing her sentence, she remains imprisoned in Jordan.
