4 Jor­da­nian troops, 3 mil­i­tants dead

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - NATION & WORLD -

Jor­da­nian search teams pulled the bod­ies of three sus­pected mil­i­tants from the rub­ble of their hide­out, a gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial said Sun­day, hours af­ter as­sailants opened fire and set off ex­plo­sions that killed four mem­bers of the se­cu­rity forces try­ing to storm the build­ing.

The clash late Satur­day was among the dead­li­est be­tween sus­pected mil­i­tants and Jor­da­nian se­cu­rity forces in re­cent years. It raised new con­cerns about at­tempts by do­mes­tic and for­eign mil­i­tants to carry out at­tacks and desta­bi­lize the pro-West­ern king­dom.
