Iraq shuts border with Jordan, citing security

Published: 01.09.13, 16:06 / Israel News

An Iraqi official says authorities have shut the country's only border crossing with Jordan over security concerns, cutting a key route through a part of the country that has been the center of anti-government protests.


The prime minister's spokesman, Ali al-Moussawi, did not specify the nature of the security fears Wednesday, and said the closure was not intended to pressure protesters. (AP)
