A group of people had vandalized a retaining wall in the city of Petra earlier on August 22, 2019, spokesman for the Public Security Directorate (PSD) said.

At the time when the PSD received a report of the incident, the security services started an investigation and the gathering of information, where around 15 people were identified to have been involved in the incident.

Following the searching, eight people were arrested, as some of them had already surrendered themselves to the police. 

The arrested were investigated and they will be referred to the judiciary, the spokesman stated. 

The search is still underway to track down the rest of the vandals.
