Jordanian Arrested For Bombing Israeli Convoy

An Amman taxi driver was arrested on suspicion of involvement in Thursday’s bombing of an Israeli diplomatic convoy in Jordan, Al-Arabiya reported.

No one was injured in the attack, in which two remote-controlled bombs were detonated close to the Allenby Bridge crossing just as a convoy of Israeli diplomats visiting Jordan passed. Four diplomats and two security guards were heading to Israel for the weekend from Amman, according to reports.

After the bombing, Jordan’s foreign minister reportedly called Israel’s ambassador to Jordan, who was not in the convoy, to assure him that all efforts were being made to arrest those responsible for the attack.
