Assailants set Shiite building on fire in southern Jordan

Dozens of local residents in the southern governorate of Karak on Friday set ablaze a building belonging to the Shi’ite Bohra sect.

Angry residents set the building on fire in the Southern Mazar region, expressing rejection of the presence of the Bohra in the area and refusing to allow visitors from the sect to the region. The Bohra are a subsect of Shi’a Isma’ili Muslims, mostly prominent in India and some in Yemen.

Nearly 300 people stormed the building and set it on fire, Ammon News Correspondent in Karak Mohammad Khawaldeh said.
