Jordan wants to deport Syrian refugees who rioted

Jordan's prime minister says Syrian refugees responsible for violence in camp near the border will be deported.

Fayez Tarawneh did not say on Wednesday how many refugees will be expelled. But a security official says there are 150 Syrian refugees in police custody, including an unspecified number of rioters and others who want to return home.

About 200 refugees went on a rampage at Zaatari Camp late Tuesday in protest against conditions there. Police said 28 officers were wounded, one of them with a fractured skull. The desert tent camp houses 21,000 refugees who complain of constant dust storms, snakes and scorpions.
