Jordan arrests suspect after deadly attack at Palestinian camp

AMMAN- Jordanian authorities arrested a suspect after an attack on Monday at a Palestinian refugee camp that killed three security officers and two others, state television and an official said. Initial investigations suggested the attack at the intelligence department’s office at the Baqaa camp was an “individual and isolated act”, Jordanian government spokesman, Mohammad al-Momani, said. He gave no further details. The kingdom, a US ally for decades and with close security ties with Israel, has long been a target of radical Sunni Muslim fundamentalist groups including al Qaeda and Islamic State.
