4 Jordanian police killed during raid


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.

“The operation will continue and will not stop until we uproot terrorism from our country,” Mr. Momani said in quotes published by the state-run Petra news agency.

State media said police officers came under fire during a raid of a suspected hideout of fugitives. Petra said the cell targeted Tuesday was not connected to those involved in Sunday’s attacks in Karak.
