The gunman who opened fire on tourists in Jordan on Monday, killing one, waited for his children to grow up before avenging his brothers' deaths in an Israeli strike on Lebanon in the 1980s, the Jordanian government said. A neighbor said gunman Nabeel Ahmed Issa Jaourah may have "hastened" because of distress at the just-ended war in Lebanon, and recent images of children killed there and in the Gaza Strip.
