A little-known Islamic group claimed it was responsible for killing an American official in Jordan on Monday to protest U.S. support for Israel. But Jordanian officials on Tuesday dismissed the claim from the group, the Honorables of Jordan, as they did last year, when the group said it killed an Israeli businessman in Amman.
