Gunmen kill 10, including Canadian
Gunmen assaulted Jordanian police in a series of attacks on Sunday, including at a Crusader castle popular with tourists, killing seven officers, two local civilians and a woman visiting from Canada, officials said. Several armed men barricaded themselves inside the castle for hours, hemmed in by special forces soldiers. At least 34 people, including two foreign nationals, were wounded in the day’s violence, which was one of the bloodiest attacks in Jordan in recent memory. less than a week after a crash off the southern island of Okinawa sparked local protests. On Dec 13, an MV-22 Osprey made what Marines called a “controlled landing” just off the Okinawan coast during a night training flight that left the aircraft in pieces. No one was killed but the accident sparked anger on the island — a strategic outpost of US military power. and a key ally of Venezuela.
