Canadian tourist among five dead in Jordan attack

Five people have been killed, including an Canadian tourist, after unidentified gunmen attacked a police station and patrols in the town of Karak in western Jordan.

Nine people have been injured in the attack.

Karak, a city and tourist destination known for one of the biggest Crusader castles in the region, is located around 120 kilometers (roughly 70 miles) south of the capital Amman.

“Five people were killed and nine others wounded, including policemen, when unknown gunmen attacked a police station and some patrols in Karak,” a source says on condition of anonymity, adding that police were hunting the gunmen and reinforcements were sent.
