Rocket attacker suspect arrested in Jordan

Jordan has arrested a Syrian man it calls the "prime suspect" in the rocket attack intended for two U.S. warships that killed a Jordanian soldier, but three other suspects escaped into Iraq, authorities in Amman said Monday.

A statement read on state television identified the suspect as Mohammad Abdullah Hassan al-Sihly, a Syrian citizen who lived in Amman. Jordan's government said he is connected with a known terrorist group based in Iraq.

His two sons and a fourth man, an Iraqi national identified as their leader, also took part in the attack, authorities said.

Friday's attacks targeted but missed two American vessels moored in the Jordanian port of Aqaba for training exercises in the region, according to CNN.

An al Qaeda-linked group claimed responsibility.
