Jordanian officials say a gunman has fired on foreign tourists in the capital, Amman, killing a British man and wounding six other people.

Authorities say the gunman was taken into custody after the shooting today (Monday) at the Roman Amphitheater, a popular tourist attraction.

Witnesses say the gunman was shouting "Allahu Akbar," or God is great.

Interior Minister Eid al-Fayez told reporters the shooting was a cowardly terrorist attack. He says the attack will be treated as an act of terrorism unless the gunman is found to be mentally unstable.

Jordan was the scene of triple suicide bombings at hotels in Amman in November. Those attacks, which killed 60 people, were claimed by al-Qaida in Iraq.
