Jordan: 4 pro-Zarqawi lawmakers charged

Four Jordanian lawmakers who paid condolences at the family home of al-Qaida terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi have been charged with instigating sectarian strife, a judicial official said Tuesday. The lawmakers of the Islamic Action Front - Mohammed Abu Fares, Jaafar al-Hourani, Ali Abu Sukkar and Ibrahim al-Mashwakhi - were also charged with racism, said the judicial official, who spoke on customary condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to the press.
