A Jordanian citizen was killed by a man of an Arab nationality in Amman, according to a statement issued by the Public Security Directorate (PSD) on Monday, September 16, 2019.

Media spokesman for the PSD said that family members of the victim have reported to the Al Bayader Police Directorate that they were unable to contact him after he left home on Sunday evening, September 15, 2019.
