Jordan’s Minister of Tourism Lina Annab and Minister of Education Azmi Mahafzah resigned Thursday over the Dead Sea disaster that took place last week.
Annab said that she had resigned from her post as Minister of Tourism and Antiquities “in light of the general political climate and the painful situation that our beloved country experienced and is experiencing.”
21 people died in flash floods last week, many of them school children on a field trip.
Many of those killed were children under 14. Families picnicking in the popular destination were also among the dead and injured.
