Jordanian intelligence officers shot dead at Palestinian refugee camp
The incident has been described as a "terrorist attack", the Al Jazeera reports.
At least three of the five people killed were intelligence officers, Jordanian officials said.
The Baqaa camp was one of six set up in 1968 for Palestinian refugees fleeing the West Bank and Gaza Strip as a result of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
It is believed to house more than 100,000 refugees.
UNRWA says the camp continues to face major challenges, including unemployment and poverty among its residents and the need for structural repair.
