The Foreign Office has amended its travel advice for Jordan to state that terrorists are ‘likely’ to carry out attacks.

It previously stated that attacks were ‘very likely’.

However, it still stays: “Attacks could be indiscriminate including in places visited by foreigners, particularly hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and tourist sites.”

There have been a number of incidents in recent years including an armed knife attack in the Roman site in Jerash, in which eight people were injured, and the bombing of a police vehicle in Fuheis, which killed two police officers.

“You should be vigilant at all times and keep updated on the situation in the country through local media and travel reports, and by subscribing for updates to this travel advice,” the Foreign Office said.

“There’s a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals, from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria.”
