Sept. 16, 2010 10:16 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 16, 2010 5:35 P.M.)
JERICHO (Ma’an) -- Palestinian police at the Al-Karameh border office, the first phase for Palestinians in crossing the Jordan River into the Hashemite Kingdom, said all terminals at the crossing would be closed for one hour on Thursday.

Officials said Israeli crews would be performing maintenance on the Israeli-controlled portion of the border, which would be closed between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Sources told Ma'an that the closure was related to the passage of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through the passage on her way to meet Jordan's King Hussein II.
