AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — The Jordanian military said on Tuesday that a man has died and two others have been arrested while attempting to enter the country.
The army said it applied its “rules of engagement” during Monday’s infiltration attempt and arrested the three suspects.
It said a Georgian man was found unconscious and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, while the other two – from Turkey and Azerbaijan – were detained.
The statement gave no further details about the cause of death, where the men had attempted to cross into the country or what they were doing at the time of the attempted crossing.
The military’s statement said it “will deal with any infiltration or smuggling attempt with full force and determination to protect borders and prevent anyone from tampering with national security.”
