  • Jordanian soldiers and relatives of Jordanian soldier Belal Al-Zuhbi carry his coffin near the city of Jerash, north of Amman, Jordan, Tuesday, June 21, 2016. A suicide attacker driving a truck packed with explosives barreled through Syria's border with Jordan, setting off a blast that killed six members of the Jordanian security forces and wounded 14. A government spokesman says Jordan is sealing the border area, leaving it unclear how international aid will reach some 64,000 Syrian refugees stranded on the other side. It was the deadliest attack along the tense border in recent memory. (AP Photo/Raad Adayleh)
