Jordan's police chief replaced after deadly IS attack
King Abdullah II has replaced the head of public security in the wake of deadly shootings that rattled the kingdom and exposed its vulnerability to attacks by militants.
The extremist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for one of the attacks.
Jordanian media reported on Wednesday that a retired military officer, Ahmad Fatih, is replacing Atef al-Saudi as head of the Public Security Directorate.
They said the king urged the new police chief in a letter to improve the skills of those under his command so they can carry their duties effectively.
