Four people were killed in an attempt to smuggle large amounts of drugs from Syria to Jordan, the kingdom's armed forces said on Sunday.


Some smugglers were also wounded while others escaped by going back to Syria, Reuters quoted the statement as saying.


In January, Jordanian soldiers killed at least 27 armed smugglers and wounded others as they crossed the border.
