Two British women killed in Jordan bus crash
Two Britons were killed when their bus overturned in Jordan, the Foreign Office confirmed today.
The women died with three Iraqi women while taking part in a UN-sponsored training course, according to local police.
Iraq's science and technology minister Raed Fahmi and 27 others were also injured in the accident yesterday near a tourist site close to the Dead Sea, police officer Lieutenant Colonel Mohammed Khatib said.
The Iraqi minister's injuries were "slight" and he is in stable condition in an Amman hospital, the officer added.
The bus is understood to have crashed as it drove along a narrow road in a hilly area overlooking the Dead Sea.
The FCO and the British Embassy in Amman confirmed the deaths, but declined to give other details.
