Israel and Jordan in diplomatic standoff after embassy deaths

Jordanian government officials were not immediately available for comment. It said one of the workers, later identified as a 17-year-old of Palestinian origin, attacked an Israeli security guard with a screwdriver. The guard opened fire, killing his attacker and another Jordanian. This was nothing more than a criminal incident.

Monday's report in Hala Akhbar says Jordan wants to investigate the shooter and if Israel refuses to allow that, it will take "diplomatic measures".

Three people, including an Israeli man, were wounded by gunfire Sunday in a residential building in the heavily fortified Israeli embassy compound in Jordan's capital, the kingdom's Public Security Directorate said.

King Abdullah II of Jordan has issued a sharp rebuke to "political showman" Benjamin Netanyahu, who has given a hero's welcome to an Israeli guard who shot an assailant and another man at the country's embassy in Jordan.

Wells Fargo customers with auto loans eligible for refunds
Wells Fargo said it began a review of the insurance policies in July of past year and stopped issuing such policies in September. Evidently, Wells Fargo bought insurance for some customers - and charged them for it - even when they had their own.

The crisis with Jordan is far from over.

Jordan is the custodian of the Al-Aqsa complex and has a large Palestinian population, making Amman sensitive to any changes of status at the site which Israel captured along with other East Jerusalem and West Bank areas in the 1967 war.

Shortly after the release, Israel accepted Palestinian demands to take down the detectors, and said it would replace them with unspecified security equipment "based on advanced technologies". Israel's move triggered Muslim protests and claims that it's trying to expand its role at the site, which is also holy to Jews. Israel has denied this.

The cameras reportedly would be located a distance away from the gates into the site, so as not to offend the worshippers, who have been protesting the metal detectors by refusing to enter the sites and holding worship services at the gates, leading to clashes with Israeli security forces that have killed at least five Muslims.

Don Law was at the helm when this weird incident occurred on July 6, and that the shark was estimated to weigh about 180 pounds. A massive mako shark jumped aboard a fishing charter boat and got stuck in a handrail earlier this month.

He said the lawyer was to brief the Muslim leadership later Monday on Israel's responses.

Israel's foreign ministry has not responded to the demand to prosecute Ziv or to reports that Amman could pursue the case in an worldwide forum.

A U.S. official said that President Donald Trump's Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, was due in Israel on Monday and was likely to attempt some mediation in the crisis.
