Jordan’s Army says attackers have detonated a car bomb on the border with Syria, killing 6 and wounding 14 Jordanian troops. The military says the attack took place at about 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, at an earthen barrier, or berm, that runs along the border, AP reported. The military says a “booby-trapped car attacked the berm, killing and wounding a number of border guards.” It says several other vehicles involved in the attack were destroyed, but did not give further details. The exact location of the attack was not immediately clear. More than 60,000 Syrian refugees are stranded at two locations along the berm, awaiting entry to Jordan. No militant group immediately claimed the attack.
