AMMAN - Jordanian police fired teargas on Sunday to disperse hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists who had gathered at a border village with Israel to mourn the creation of the state of Israel, witnesses said.

The incident occurred hours after Israeli forces opened fire at border locations in Syria and Lebanon to prevent crowds of demonstrators from crossing Israeli frontier lines, in the deadliest such confrontation in years.
