Jordan says intelligence officers killed in refugee camp attack

Five people have been killed in an attack on an office of Jordan’s intelligence services at a refugee camp near the capital, Amman.

The incident, rare in Jordan, was confirmed by the country’s minister of media affairs, Mohammed al-Momani, who said it took place at an office in the Baqa’a refugee camp just before 7am (4am GMT) on Monday morning.

He gave no details of the attack but said it was carried out by those with the “criminal behaviour of people who are outside of our religion”.
