Jordan warns Syrian refugees against rioting


AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan's has warned Syrian refugees in its tent camp near the Syrian border against rioting.

Public security officials say rioting by 200 refugees late Tuesday over the camp's 'poor services' injured 26 Jordanian security officers.

Information Minister Sameeh Maaytah said Wednesday that Jordan 'will not tolerate' any such revolts in the future, although he did not mention any specific measures.

Jordan now hosts 180,000 Syrian refugees. Nearly 4,600 crossed the border in the past 24 hours as fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad escalates, Maaytah said.

Jordan is racing to open a second refugee camp to handle the influx.

On Tuesday, dozens of protesters outside the U.N. refugee agency in Amman demanded the closure of the Zaatari tent camp due to its harsh desert conditions.
