Jordan's criminal prosecutor on Tuesday charged two men with kidnapping and rape for allegedly attacking two British women in a plantation near the Israeli border, a judicial official said. Four others, including two who remain at large, were charged with attempted rape and attempted kidnapping, the official said. The alleged attack was the second incident involving assaults on foreign women in Jordan in a month. Police withheld the names of the two women, who authorities said were raped early Saturday morning in a vegetable grove in a town in the central Jordan Valley. The area is near the border with Israel and the West Bank and is frequented by tourists visiting the biblical Jordan River.
