Flash floods kill 11 in Jor­dan

The Star Malaysia - - World -

AM­MAN: Flash floods killed 11 peo­ple in Jor­dan and forced nearly 4,000 tourists to flee the famed an­cient desert city of Petra. Search teams were scour­ing val­leys near the historic hill town of Mad­aba for two young girls still miss­ing af­ter Fri­day’s floods, civil de­fence spokesman Iyad Amru told state tele­vi­sion in an up­date yes­ter­day. Des­ig­nated a Unesco world her­itage site in 1985, Petra draws hun­dreds of thou­sands of tourists a year to its rock-hewn trea­sury, tem­ples and mau­soleums.
