Associated Press|
Jordanian officials say a fire has killed 13 people in a farming community along the border with Israel and Syria.
The Jordanian civil defense says in a statement that the fire broke out early Monday in a shack where two Pakistani families live in the village of al-Shuna al-Janobia.
Three others were injured. It says the dead included eight children, four women and a man -- all said to be Pakistani nationals.
The civil defense says an electrical fault caused the fire and an investigation has been launched.
