Following the sentencing of the Jordanian soldier to life imprisonment for the murder of three US soldiers, angry relatives of the accused blocked the Al Jafer road in protest against the sentence.

Earlier in the day, the State Security Court sentence the soldier to life in prison and hard labour, for killing three US Special Forces instructors at Jafer airbase in November 2016.

A security source told Roya Arabic that the Badia forces have since restored traffic to normal, stressing that the security situation is under control.
