JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority police detained 34 people wanted on criminal charges at the Allenby border crossing between the West Bank and Jordan this week.

Police said those detained at the border were wanted for financial crimes, fraud and "various criminal acts."

Crossings officials said nearly 25,000 people crossed the border over the week in a statement.

Some 11,764 entered the West Bank while 13,028 left for Jordan, including 22 patients traveling in ambulances for medical treatment.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials refused to allow 72 Palestinians to leave the West Bank because of "security concerns," the statement added.
