Two people were killed in an explosion in a scrap metal store north of the Jordanian capital Amman on Monday. The store reportedly sells scrap iron imported from Iraq, a practice declared illegal by the Jordanian government after it discovered in metal shipments parts of missiles which were suspected of being contaminated with radioactive material.
