AMMAN (Reuters) – Jordanian security forces said on Monday they uncovered and detonated explosives hidden in a commercial warehouse in an industrial area southeast of the capital Amman.

Witnesses had earlier said security forces had sealed the Abu Alanda area in a wide scale security operation that comes two days after authorities announced they had detonated explosives uncovered in another location in the capital.
