Snow blankets desert Jordan, stranding motorists

Men in long Arab robes pelted snow balls at each other in the capital of this desert nation on Wednesday as a heavy snowstorm battered Jordan, stranding motorists, cutting off villages and sparking appeals to

citizens to remain indoors.


Police warned that roads in the capital and highways linking the capital were temporarily closed. Announcements broadcast on state television appealed for citizens to remain indoors to avoid the dangers of icy roads. (AP)
