Jordan shooting: Three US military trainers killed at al-Jafr air base

Three US military trainers have been shot dead in an exchange of fire at an air base in Jordan, a US official says.

One was killed at the base and two others died later in hospital.

They were in vehicles approaching the gate of a military training centre at al-Jafr air base when they came under small-arms fire, the official added.

An earlier statement from the Jordanian military said the car they were in failed to stop at the gate and was fired upon by security forces.
