A gunman apparently acting alone killed five Jordanian intelligence agents on Monday (June 6th) in a "terrorist attack" on their office in a refugee camp north of Amman, AFP reported.
"The intelligence agency office in the Baqaa camp was the target of a cowardly attack shortly before 7 a.m. today that left five agents dead," said government spokesman Mohammed Momani.
Security forces are investigating who was responsible for the "terrorist attack", he added.
The shooting happened as the team members were starting their shift.
It was unclear whether the gunman was a camp resident or an outsider.
The Baqaa camp is 20 kilometres from central Amman and is the largest of the kingdom's 10 official Palestinian refugee camps.
