 AMMAN - Eleven men went on trial on Thursday in a Jordanian military court accused of plotting to carry out suicide attacks in the capital, including on shopping malls and the US Embassy, judicial sources said.

The Jordanian defendants, all suspected supporters of al-Qaida, pleaded not guilty to charges of "possession of explosives and plotting to undertake terror attacks and infiltration across borders", the sources said.

The prosecution said the cell had targeted major shopping malls in the capital and was planning a bombing campaign in the capital's affluent Abdoun neighborhood, where many foreign embassies are located.
