A group of Muslim terrorists (that may be connected to the villains at ISIS) mounted a siege at a popular tourist attraction in the Jordanian city of Karak.
The group of armed men attacked an ancient castle that was used by Christian Crusaders more than 1,000 years ago. The evil jihadists killed five police officers and four civilians, including a visiting Canadian tourist. Along with the 9 dead, some 30 others were taken to the hospital to have their injuries tended to.
From the UK’s Express:
According to reports police responding to fake reports of a house fire in the city were ambushed by the group of gunmen, who opened fire on them as they entered the property.
After two officers were wounded the gang fled by car and attacked another security patrol, but nobody was injured in that skirmish.
They then fled to Karak castle, where they holed up and took the terrified tourists hostages…

There have been some unconfirmed reports that ISIS was cheering the attack, but no one has yet taken responsibility for the attack.
