U.S. Embassy in Jordan Targeted in Foiled al-Qaida Plot

October 22, 2012

Jordanian officials say they have disrupted a plot by al-Qaida-linked operatives that would have launched attacks on both civilian and government targets -- including a U.S. embassy -- in Amman, Jordan, The Washington Post reported.

Jordan’s government said on Sunday that 11 people with connections to al-Qaida's affiliate in Iraq had been arrested. Officials in Jordan said that the plotters had “amassed a stockpile of explosives and weapons from Syrian battlefields and devised a plan to use military-style tactics in a wave of attacks across Amman,” according to The Post

U.S. officials declined to comment on the alleged plot.
