A “GUNMAN” has been killed and 12 Jordanian policemen wounded as a police station came under attack in the northern city of Irbid in Jordan, state media reported.

The incident came a day after Jordan was hit by a wave of angry protests over a huge rise in fuel prices, with rioting and clashes erupting in Amman and other cities and another police station attacked.

“Twelve policemen were injured when a group of gunmen attacked a police station in Irbid. One of the gunmen died in a shootout, while four others were wounded,” said a police statement carried by state-run Petra news agency.

“All the wounded were taken to hospital. Some of the policemen are in serious condition,” it said.

A sudden fuel price hike has drawn sharp condemnation from Jordan’s opposition Islamists, who warned of civil disobedience and increased opposition to the government in the run-up to general elections in January, which they are boycotting.

Angry protesters on Wednesday blocked a main road in downtown Amman as police warned they would use force if necessary to open the road.
