10 Die In Toxic Gas Leak In Jordan

Leak from tank at Aqaba port affects 251 people.

At least ten people lost their lives on Monday in a toxic gas leak in the Jordanian city of Aqaba, according to local authorities.
Jordan's Public Security Directorate said 251 people were also affected by the gas leak from a tank at Aqaba port.
"Specialists and hazardous materials teams in the Civil Defense Authority are currently dealing with the gas leak," Col. Amer Al-Sartawi, a spokesman for the directorate, said in a statement.
The spokesman said a tanker filled with a toxic gaseous substance fell during its transportation, causing a gas leak at the site.
"The area was immediately isolated and specialists began to deal with the incident," he added.
