AMMAN — Four people were injured during a brawl in the town of Barha in Irbid Governorate on Monday, according to a police official.

“The brawl was between individuals from the same family who differed on where to bury a dead woman,” Public Security Department (PSD) Spokesperson Major Amer Sartawi told The Jordan Times.

The argument became heated and weapons were used resulting in four injuries, Sartawi said, adding that several houses were also set ablaze.

Gendarmerie forces were dispatched to the area and brought the situation under control, according to the PSD spokesperson.

Police are questioning dozens of people to find out more about the incident and who was involved, he said.
