Israel, Jordan identify victims of embassy attack

But Jordanian police, who were unable to question the guard, said on Monday that he had fired on the 16-year-old after the young man, who worked for a furniture company and was delivering an order, got into a brawl and attacked him.

Jordanian officials have called on Israel to remove metal detectors outside the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Israel's security Cabinet was meeting from late Sunday until the early hours of Monday to discuss the crisis at the shrine, and was briefed during the meeting about the incidents at the embassy, the Foreign Ministry said.

After setting free an Israeli embassy guard who eliminated a terrorist in Amman this week, Jordan appeared to regret the decision and now seeks "justice".

The Jordanian security agency did not say what triggered the shooting.

North Korea threatens nuclear strike on 'heart of US'
The government had asked the North to answer the South's call by Thursday, but the North has yet to respond. For the time being, the USA policy towards North Korea is not one of regime change.

There are different versions of how the Jordanians were killed.

An Israeli government source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said Israel was also "giving preliminary consideration to offering compensation to the family of the second Jordanian (the landlord) killed in the incident".

The landlord of the apartment rented by the Israeli embassy where the incident happened - Bashar Hamarneh - was mistakenly killed by an embassy guard following a stabbing attack.

Palestinians view the move as Israel asserting further control over the Haram al-Sharif mosque compound, known to Jews as Temple Mount.

King Abdullah on Thursday also paid tribute to the families of the two Jordanians and stressed on Jordan's respect of worldwide laws.

They also insisted that Jordan shred to pieces a highly unpopular peace treaty signed between Amman and Tel Aviv in 1994, according to Press TV.

Jordanian police said the building owner was a physician.

"Jordan will not allow ambassador Einat Shlein or the rest of the embassy staff to return until a thorough investigation has been opened" into Sunday's shooting, the official said.

"I agree if the Israeli government can not respect the lives of Jordanian citizens in their own country they don't deserve to have an embassy there". Abbas deserves an entire column of his own detailing his irresponsibility in almost every aspect of this drama, including his continuing dissembling over alleged threats to the Temple Mount status quo and his shockingly irresponsible and risky invitation to the Tanzim militia to lead mass protests this Friday.
