AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -- A Jordanian police official says a man wearing an explosive belt was arrested as he tried to enter the office of Jordan's largest opposition group.
The official said the man was being questioned after what appeared to be a planned attack on the Amman headquarters of the Islamic Action Front, the political arm of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood.
He declined to provide other details and insisted on anonymity in line with standing police regulations.
Islamic Action Front leaders were not immediately available for comment.
