18. Jordan closes Iraqi border after attack
AMMAN (AFP) - Jordan closed its border crossing with Iraq (news - web sites) to all travellers coming from the war-torn country, a day after a van exploded at the Iraqi border post of Trebil.

On Friday, a van exploded at Trebil, destroying a room often used by US army personnel.

Almost simultaneously, an Iraqi-registered civilian car rigged with explosives was detected at Jordan's Karameh crossing and its two Iraqi occupants arrested.

They were allegedly planning to detonate the car against a convoy of fuel tankers who were waiting for US security to escort them through Iraq.
