A man committed suicide by jumping off Abdoun Bridge in Amman on Tuesday morning, a security source has said.

The body has been transferred to hospital and will be examined by a forensic doctor, while an investigation has been launched into the incident.

Abdoun Bridge is often associated with suicide because of the dozens of people who ended their lives by jumping off the famous Amman landmark.

In May, a mother tried to commit suicide with her children by jumping off the bridge, however, she was talked out of it by police officers.

The last suicide to take place at the doomed bridge was in March 2018.
