Five Killed In Refugee Camp Attack In Jordan

At least five people have been killed, following an attack on Jordanian intelligence officers, at a Palestinian refugee camp, outside the capital, Amman.

Five people have been killed in an attack on Jordanian intelligence officers at a Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, government officials say.

They described the incident as a “terrorist attack”.

Three of the five people killed were intelligence officers, the officials said.

The attack took place at the sprawling Baqaa camp north of Amman at about 07:00 local time (04:00 GMT).

The Baqaa camp was one of six set up in 1968 for Palestinian refugees fleeing the West Bank and Gaza Strip as a result of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
