Nine people, including a Canadian tourist, have been killed after gunmen launched a series of attacks in and around a medieval castle in Jordan.

Police said five officers and four civilians were killed in several attacks in the southern Jordanian town of Karak, popular with tourists.

Earlier, at least 10 people, including foreign tourists, were rescued from the medieval fortress. Hospitals were treating several people who were injured.

Jordanian security forces said they had killed four "terrorist outlaws" after flushing them out of the castle where they had holed up after the shootout.
