Five Palestinians arrested in Jordan after Syria refuses entry

Jordan has put five potential 'bombers' on trial, just days after bombs killed almost 60 in Amman. They were arrested in house raids in July.

The five Palestinians planned to travel to Iraq through Syria, but they were turned away by the Syrian authorities.

They face up to 15 years in jail. Each of the five pleaded not guilty, and its not clear whether they have links to Al Qaeda.
