U.S. issues travel warning for Jordan after recent attacks


WASHINGTON The U.S. State Department on Friday warned Americans travelling to Jordan of threats from terrorist groups after several recent attacks in the country.

More than a dozen people were killed, including a Canadian tourist, in two attacks by Islamist militants this week in the southern city of Karak.

“The Department of State reminds U.S. citizens that terrorist and extremist organizations have expressed a desire to conduct attacks targeting U.S. citizens and Westerners in Jordan,” the travel warning said.
