In most places in the world, today's date is written 9-11, for it is the 9th day of November.
Three male bombers (allegedly all Iraqis) and 57 bystanders were killed at three hotels - the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the Radisson SAS Hotel, and the Days Inn - in Amman, Jordan, on 9 November 2005. Al-Qaeda in Iraq immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Today is the 10th anniversary of that event.
Four Jordanians and two American were also wounded in today's incident.
Jordanian security forces killed the shooter.
No members of the U.S. military, who cycle through the training center, were involved in the shooting, the U.S. official said.
"We are in contact with the appropriate Jordanian authorities, who have offered their full support," a U.S. Embassy spokesman in Jordan told CNN. "We will report more information when available and appropriate."
On 9 November 694, at the Seventeenth Council of Toledo, Egica, a king of the Visigoths of Hispania, accused the Jews of aiding Muslims, sentencing all Jews to slavery.
