Heightened nerves

First report from Jordanian news agency Petra indicating that US military personnel were killed in Jordan in a case of mistaken assumption at entry to a military base --

Two US military trainers were killed on Friday morning after their vehicle tried to enter the Prince Faisal Airbase in Al Jafr area, south of Jordan, an official source at the Jordan Armed Forces said. The two trainers were killed in a fire exchange at the gate, the source added. A Jordanian officer and a third US trainer were also injured in the incident.

The Middle East keeps finding ways to get more complicated.
