Ten­sions high over se­cu­rity mea­sures at Al-Aqsa mosque

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

JERUSALEM, Mid­dle East — An Is­raeli se­cu­rity guard shot dead a Jor­da­nian who at­tacked him with a screw­driver at the Is­raeli em­bassy com­pound in Am­man, while a sec­ond Jor­da­nian was ac­ci­den­tally killed, of­fi­cials and a se­cu­rity source said.

The in­ci­dent on Sun­day came with ten­sions high over new Is­raeli se­cu­rity mea­sures at a highly sen­si­tive holy site in Jerusalem, but it was not clear if there was any link.

The Jor­da­nian had come to an apart­ment in an an­nex build­ing at the Is­raeli em­bassy, to in­stall fur­ni­ture and stabbed the se­cu­rity guard in the back with the screw­driver, Is­rael’s For­eign Min­istry said.
