Four Jordanian police killed in raid on fugitives’ hideout
AMMAN | Four policemen were killed Tuesday in an exchange of fire with wanted men in a central Jordanian province where assailants had killed 10 people in a series of ambushes earlier this week, state media said.
Government spokesman Mohammed Momani told reporters Tuesday night that one fugitive was killed and one wounded.
State media said police officers came under fire during a raid of a suspected hideout of fugitives. The cell targeted Tuesday was not connected to those involved in Sunday’s attacks in Karak, according to the state-run Petra news agency.
