Jordan said to have arrested 'dozens'

Jordan is said to have arrested 'dozens' of Muslim terrorists in connection with an attack on a convoy of Israeli embassy personnel making its way from Amman to the Allenby bridge two weeks ago.
A Jordanian security official says authorities have arrested dozens of Muslim militants in connection with a failed bomb attack on Israeli diplomats.

The official said Sunday that dozens have been detained in a police crackdown mostly on Salafists — militants who seek to revive strict Muslim doctrine dating back to the era of the 6th Century Prophet Muhammad.

He said the crackdown was continuing across Jordan.
Sounds like another opportunity for the Jordanian government to lock up a few people that it considers threats to its stability. They may or may not have had anything to do with the bombing attempt.
