”Killing”  in the name a Jordanian movie, which is a documentary on terrorism and the impact of the 2005 Amman hotel bombings is set for the global stage after being nominated for an Academy Award on Tuesday.

“Killing in the Name”, which follows the mission of Jordanian Ashraf Khaled, who lost his father and in-laws when Al Qaeda bombers targeted his wedding reception, to speak truth to terror, received an Oscar nomination in the best short documentary category yesterday.

Co-producers said they were “honoured” by the academy’s recognition of the film, a collaboration of Khaled and fellow Global Survivors Network (GSN) co-founder Carie Lemack, who lost her mother in the September 11 attacks.
