Iraqi Minister Injured in Traffic Accident

A road accident in Jordan has killed at least six people, including two British nationals, and injured 28 others, including an Iraqi minister, police say.

The crash happened when a tourist bus was transporting the victims from the Dead Sea back to Amman late Thursday night, said police spokesman Mohammed al-Khatib.

Four Iraqis were also killed in the accident, Jordan's media reported.

Iraqi Minister of Science and Technology, Raed Fahmi, was among the injured and was transferred to King Hussein Medical Centre in Amman.

Police said that the delegation was taking part in a United Nations training program for Iraqi students and that they had gone to a Dead Sea hotel for dinner.

Some of the injured remained in critical condition, while others suffered fractures and bruises but are in stable conditions, according to police.
