Jordan seeks prisoner exchange with Islamic State to free pilot
A Jordanian government spokesperson said Jordan is "ready to release" an Iraqi woman in exchange for captured pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh.
Sajida al-Rishawi is an Iraqi al-Qaeda militant sentenced to death in Jordan.
The Jordanian government will release her if Mr al-Kasasbehd, can be released "without jeopardising his life".
In the statement broadcast on Jordanian television they said "Jordan's stance from the beginning is to secure the life of our son".
