Jordanian police fired tear gas on Sunday to disperse Syrian refugees at a northern camp after they tried to attack the storehouse of a Norwegian charity as it gave away aid, injuring a policeman.
"A Norwegian charity was distributing aid when 200 refugees at the Zaatari camp started rioting and tried to attack the organisation's storehouse," Anmar Hmud, a government spokesman for refugee affairs, told AFP.
"A policeman was injured in the 30-minute riot. Police intervened, firing tear gas to disperse the refugees," Hmud said.
