A Jordanian army statement said that five drug traffickers were killed today during a failed attempt to smuggle large quantities of drugs from Syria to Jordan.

The statement added that four other smugglers were injured while trying to cross the northern border with Syria at dawn, and that large quantities of drugs were seized.

The Jordanian army's statement came a day after the interior ministers (Jordan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon) agreed, at the conclusion of their meeting held yesterday in Amman, to establish a "joint communication cell" to combat cross-border drug smuggling between the four countries.
