A Canadian female tourist is among at least ten people killed in a shootout between gunmen and security officials in and around a medieval castle in southern Jordan, authorities say.

The Jordanian government says an operation is underway to flush out six “terrorists” from the citadel in the mountainous city of Karak.

Witnesses reported hearing sporadic gunfire in the vicinity of the citadel, which is one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations.

Two Jordanian civilians and seven police officers are also said to have been killed.
