Two US trainers were killed and a third American wounded in an “exchange of fire” on Friday at a Jordanian air force base, the Jordanian army said.




The shooting took place at the gate of the Al-Jafr air force base when the car carrying the US trainers did not heed orders to stop, the army said, adding that a Jordanian officer was also wounded.


“There was an exchange of fire at the entrance to the base after an attempt by the trainers’ vehicle to enter the gate without heeding orders of the guards to stop,” a military source told the Reuters news agency.
