A Jordanian army officer shot dead two American military personnel and one South African and wounded six other people on Monday at a U.S.-funded security training facility near Amman, Jordan's government spokesman said.

Mohammad Momani told Reuters that the attacker was shot dead by Jordanian security forces; he did not commit suicide as security forces earlier reported.

A Jordanian security source said the gunman was a senior co-trainer with the rank of captain.

It took place on the 10th anniversary of al Qaeda suicide bombings that targeted three Amman luxury hotels. Dozens were killed in those attacks. Jordan has joined other nations trying to defeat Islamic insurgents in the region.
