Jordan special forces take out gunmen after attacks kill 10 | The Daily Star

Jordanian special forces killed four gunmen late Sunday evening, ending a standoff at a Crusader castle where the armed men holed up after a series of deadly attacks, and seizing an arms cache.

The gunmen had earlier ambushed Jordanian police at the fortress popular with tourists, killing seven officers, two local civilians and a woman visiting from Canada, officials said.

At least 27 people were wounded in one of the bloodiest attacks in Jordan in recent memory.

The standoff between Jordanian special forces and armed men holed up inside the castle ended well after nightfall, several hours after the first shooting.
