AMMAN – The Canadian and Australian embassy in Jordan shut their doors to the public on Sunday because of an undisclosed security threat a day after Britain closed its embassy in Amman for the same reason, diplomats said.
“The two embassies closed until further notice due to the security situation. It’s possibly related to the same security threat received by the British embassy,” one Western diplomat who requested anonymity told Reuters.
Britain closed its embassy in Jordan on Saturday because of fears of attacks on Westerners. Jordanian authorities said the closure was unnecessary…
Police had tightened security around Western missions and hotels since the triple bombings that shattered Jordan’s sense of being an island of stability in a troubled region.
