AMMAN (AA) – The first suspect to be arrested in connection with a Monday attack on an office affiliated with the Jordanian intelligence apparatus was picked up Tuesday, according to a Jordanian government official.
In a statement, government spokesman Mohammad Momani said intelligence officers had arrested one individual suspected of involvement in Monday’s "terrorist" attack in Amman.
Momani’s statement, however, did not provide any information regarding the identity of the suspect.
On Monday evening, five people were killed in an attack on an office affiliated with the Jordanian intelligence apparatus in the Baqaa Camp for Palestinian refugees in northern Amman.
Three intelligence officers and two clerical employees were killed in the attack, which was swiftly condemned by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, Yemen, the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
