The army statement on the official Petra news agency says Sunday's crash occurred at 13:10 local time (10:30 GMT). It did not disclose the crash location or cause, saying only that the Royal Air Force jet crashed during a "routine" training exercise. Jordan has more than 20 F-16 fighter jets. They are part of military aid provided by the United States to this longtime Washington ally.
