10 Die In Toxic Gas Leak In Jordan

Leak from storage tank at Aqaba port affects 251 people.

At least 10 people were killed Monday after toxic gas leaked from a storage tank at Jordan's Aqaba port, according to local authorities.
Jordan's Public Security Directorate said 251 people were also affected by the leak.
"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 tank filled with a toxic gaseous substance fell while being transported, causing a gas leak at the site.
"The area was immediately isolated and specialists began to deal with the incident," he added.
Following the deadly incident, Türkiye extended its condolences to the "friendly and brotherly government and people of Jordan" as well as to the relatives of those who lost their lives and wished a swift recovery to the injured. -
