Jordan Charges Soldier Over U.S. Special Forces Murder | Newsweek

Jordan has charged a soldier with murder and intent to kill after he allegedly opened fire on a U.S. convoy and killed three U.S. Special Forces soldiers last year.

A Jordanian official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case, told CNN the Jordanian had been formally charged but declined to identify him.

Army Staff Sgt. Kevin McEnroe, Staff Sgt. Matthew Lewellen and Staff Sgt. James Moriarty were shot at King Faisal Air Base in Jordan in November last year when a guard fired an M-16 rifle at a U.S. convoy as it approached the main gate.
