Two Jordanian security officers were killed by suspected terrorists and more than 20 people were injured in two related incidents near Amman at the weekend.
One policeman was killed and six others injured when an explosive device blew up in a village outside Amman on Friday night in what government officials called a terrorist act.
A second Jordanian security officer was killed late on Saturday in clashes with suspects believed to be responsible for the bombing.
According to local news reports, 16 people were injured after a firefight erupted during a raid by security forces on the suspects in the area of Naqab Al Dabour near the town of Salt, 15 kilometres north-west of Amman.
