Jordanian Prime Minister Omar al-Razzaz denied his government's responsibility for the accidents caused by the rains. This came in response to accusations by members of the House of Representatives of the government today of the negligence that caused casualties. He added that what happened "is considered exceptional circumstances and lies in the advanced countries beyond the possibilities but I do not escape responsibility." He stressed that his government will add in the next budget amounts of infrastructure in areas hit by the flood. Heavy rains and torrential rains in some parts of Jordan, including the historic tourist city of Petra, have killed at least 12 people and evacuated about 4,000.
