Jordanians allegedly brought heroin into W. Bank

Jordan's military prosecutors charged four men with smuggling heroin and weapons across the Dead Sea into Israel and the West Bank for distribution, according to an indictment made available Wednesday. Two of the suspects, identified as Yousef M., 23, and Ahmed S., 23, are in police custody. Two others, identified as Khaled Rashaydeh and his brother Ali - both Palestinian - are at large and are to be tried in absentia unless they surrender to police within ten days, the document said.
