BEIRUT (Reuters) - The main border crossing between Jordan and Iraq is to reopen on Wednesday for the first time since 2015, a statement from both governments said.

The decision to reopen the Tureibil crossing was taken after "securing the road ... from attacks and criminal gangs," the statement said.
