Attacker stabs 3 tourists at popular Jordanian tourist site

AP  |  Amman 

Jordanian officials say an attacker has stabbed a number of tourists and their tour guide at a popular archaeological site in northern Jordan.

The wounded were taken to a hospital and the attacker was arrested.

Wednesday's incident occurred at the ancient city of Jerash. The Public Security directorate said the attacker also stabbed a policeman who tried to stop him.

There were no further details, but the al-Ghad newspaper said the tourists were Mexican and suffered serious wounds.

An amateur video from the scene showed a woman lying motionless on the ground as someone pressed a towel on her back, with blood splattered on the ground around her. A man sat nearby with an apparent wound to his leg.
