    TEL AVIV - An unknown person armed with a knife attacked a group of tourists on Wednesday who were visiting the Jordanian city of Jerash (north of Amman), known for its Roman-era archaeological artifacts.

    Six people were injured in the attack: three Mexicans; one Swiss; and two Jordanians, a police officer and a tourist guide, said Jordanian Health Minister Saad Jaber, cited by the official press agency Petra.

    The attacker was arrested, identified, and is now under investigation.

    The injured people were taken to hospital in Jerash for initial treatment.

    Some of them are in serious condition, however, and will be transferred with a private jet to a medical centre in Amman.
