AMMAN (Reuters) - A car laden with explosives killed a number of Jordanian border guards outside a camp for Syrian refugees near the boundary between the two countries on Tuesday, the Jordanian army said.

The car exploded a few hundred meters from Rakban camp in a desolate eastern area of the country where the borders of Iraq, Syria and Jordan meet, the army said.

A number of other vehicles used in the attack were destroyed, it added.
