A group of kipah-clad Jewish tourists in Jordan reportedly was harassed and attacked by locals.

Arab media reported that Jordanians in the town of Al Karak grew agitated on Monday when they saw a few Jewish men wearing head coverings in the local market. They threw shoes at them and chased them away, the Jordanian daily Al Arab al Youm reported.

The Anti-Defamation League described the incident as a cause for concern and called on the Jordanian government to investigate.
