AMMAN — The defendants involved in December’s terrorist attacks in Karak, 140km southwest of Amman, on Monday denied all the charges against them when the State Security Court (SSC) asked them to enter their pleas of guilty or not guilty, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The 11 defendants, one of whom is still wanted, are charged with terrorist acts, manufacturing explosives and providing money to be used in terrorist acts, among other charges, which the fugitive defendant was also charged with. The SSC adjourned the session until June 14 in order to allow the prosecution to bring witnesses in the case, Petra reported.
