The trial began Wednesday for a man charged with fatally shooting a British tourist and wounding six others at a Roman amphitheater in Jordan last month. Nabeel Ahmed Issa Jaourah, a Jordanian of Palestinian origin, is accused of killing British tourist Christopher Stokes and wounding five other Western tourists, plus a Jordanian policeman. He faces death by hanging if convicted on charges of carrying out terrorist attacks, murder and illegal possession of a weapon. The Jordanian government says that while in custody, Jaourah told his interrogators that he wanted to avenge the deaths of his two brothers who died in an Israeli raid on Lebanon in 1982. He waited more than 20 years, because he wanted his five children to grow up first, the government has said.
