AMMAN – Jordanian writer Nahed Hattar was shot to death near the Palace of Justice in Abdali, central Amman, this morning by a gunman, Al Rai daily reported. 

The gunman was later arrested, Al Rai quoted a police officer. 

Hattar, who sparked outrage after sharing a caricature that was considered insulting to Muslims, was apparently going to attend a court session. 

He was released on bail some two weeks ago after spending some days in detention.
