  • Description

    Following the Aug 29 assassination of Jordan Premier Hazza Majali, troops were salvaging material from the bomb-shattered Foreign Ministry, Amman, Aug 31. Majali's body was brought from the rubble 2 1/2 hours after explosion which killed him and 10 others.

    Two time bombs-apparently intended to kill King Hussein and the entire Jordan cabinet - were planted; the one which killed Majali wrecked the entire right wing of the three-storey Ministry. It exploded 1 1/2 hours after a scheduled Cabinet meeting Hussein planned to attend, but pressure of work compelled him to ask for a 3 hour postponement - and his life was saved.

    So far, three men have been arrested by Jordan security officials two minor government employees, and an unnamed businessman.
