AMMAN — The State Security Court on Monday listened to three witnesses in the so-called Salt terrorist cell, which claimed the lives of six security personnel in August last year, before adjourning the hearing for next Monday, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Thirteen defendants face charges of manufacturing, possessing and using weapons and explosives in terrorist acts that led to the death of people.

A 14th defendant, facing the same charges, is being tried in absentia. In another case, a 30-year-old man was sentenced to 10-year prison term on charges related to plotting to carry out terrorist attacks and trying to join terrorist organisations and armed groups, according to Petra.
