US warns citizens of threat against malls in Jordan

The U.S. embassy in Amman has warned its citizens to avoid upscale shopping malls in the Jordanian capital, saying it had received what it called credible information that they could be targeted by militants. In a statement posted on its website late on Wednesday, the embassy said militant groups “have repeatedly expressed interest in attacking so-called soft targets, such as malls and restaurants, in Jordan”. The statement added that Jordan had “taken steps to increase security at these locations”.
