One Syrian refugee killed in clashes with Jordanian security
At least one Syrian refugee was killed in Jordan's sprawling Zaatari camp when hundreds of refugees clashed with security forces, residents said on Saturday. Jordanian police blamed agitators who were apprehended after trying to flee the refugee camp of nearly 70,000 residents.

 

They said scores of refugees in the sprawling camp close to the Syrian border were injured as baton-wielding anti-riot police used tear gas to disperse stone-throwing refugees who set fire to official offices and caravans.  (Reuters)
