A government spokesman says a shooting rampage that killed three foreign police instructors, including two Americans, will not harm Jordan’s security ties with other nations.

Mohammed Momani also told The Associated Press on Wednesday that images circulated on social media show the aftermath of the shooting in a canteen in the police training center. The photos showed three large pools of blood on the ground and two tables, one with plates of food.

Jordan’s government has said little else about Monday’s attack by a Jordanian police captain who also killed two Jordanian translators before being shot dead.

Momani says an investigation of the shooter’s motives is continuing.

He says the government believes the attack “will have no impact on our security relations with our friends and allies.”
