Jordan recalls ambassador as Syria dispute heats up

By

Tension between Syria and Jordan appeared to be nearing crisis proportions Tuesday after Jordan withdrew from a joint border post and recalled its ambassador to Damascus. Syria accused Jordan of violating agreements by withdrawing from the frontier post, refusing entry to Syrian citizens and expelling many more. The moves coincided with an unconfirmed report that a senior Jordanian diplomat kidnapped in Beirut had been killed. Jordan has accused Syrian military intelligence Hisham Muheisen last Friday, but Damascus has dismissed the charge as part of a hostile propaganda campaign.
