Jordan security forces arrest suspect in attack that killed five | Reuters

AMMAN Jordanian security forces have arrested a suspect in the attack on a security office in a Palestinian camp that left five dead, including three security officers, Jordanian state television said.

Security forces said a major manhunt was launched following the attack at the Baqaa camp early on Monday. The incident jolted the U.S.-backed Arab kingdom, whose relative stability has distinguished it from neighbouring Syria and Iraq.
