Jordan court charges 21 with ‘terrorism’

A Jordanian court on Sunday charges 21 people with carrying out “terrorist acts.” They had been arrested in an operation against jihadists in the country’s north in March, a prosecutor says.

The State Security Court accuses them of committing “terrorist acts that led to deaths,” making explosives and possessing weapons, the official Petra news agency quotes the court’s chief prosecutor as saying.

The agency does not say when their trial would begin.
