Shooter's uncle in custody

Posted:

A lawyer says an uncle of the shooter in last week's killing of five U.S. servicemen in Tennessee has been in custody in Jordan since a day after the attack.


   The lawyer says family members have been prevented from visiting the uncle of Muhammad Abdulazeez.


   The Tennessee shooter had spent several months in Jordan last year, and a Jordanian government official said today that some of his relatives in Jordan were being questioned as part of an investigation into his stay in the kingdom.


   Media reports have suggested that Abdulazeez also visited Qatar last year. But the government there insists he was only in the country to change planes at the airport.


   Abdulazeez, who was of Palestinian origin, was born in Kuwait and grew up in the United States, but has relatives in Jordan and the West Bank.
