Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal was allowed to visit Jordan on Thursday to visit his ailing mother, Jordanian officials said, according to AFP.

"The interior minister [Mazen Saket] gave Khaled Mashaal special permission to come to Jordan for a limited time to visit his mother who is in hospital," Abdullah Abu Rumman told AFP.

In 2009 he was allowed to visit his dying father in Jordan, the first time since 1999 that the exiled leader had visited the country.
