Jordan executed two militant prisoners at dawn today after vowing a harsh response to the Islamic State group's burning alive of a Jordanian pilot.

Would-be Iraqi female suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi and Iraqi Al-Qaeda member Ziad al-Karboli were executed at 4.00am local time.

A security source said the executions were carried out at Swaqa prison south of the capital Amman.

Jordan had promised to begin executing death-row Islamic extremists at daybreak in response to the murder of Maaz al-Kassasbeh, who was captured by IS when his plane went down in December.
