Jordan charges three with terrorism

Jordan
leveled terrorism charges against three men who allegedly planned to attack on
a factory that imports minced turkey meat from Israel.

The charges announced Friday arose from an arrest in
mid-March when authorities allegedly surprised the plotters at the factory.

It was not clear, however, whether the alleged crime was
necessarily political; one of the plotters was apparently employed by a
competing firm that had once imported the meat from Israel.
