An immigration official at the border crossing between Jordan and Iraq told reporters Friday that no American or other Westerner had passed the frontier into Jordan for more than 24 hours, an apparent confirmation that Iraq has closed down exits for Westerners. Witnesses at the frontier said that a bus carrying an unspecified number of Americans was turned back by Iraqi officials overnight. On Friday, only foreigners of Arab origin were permitted to leave Iraq and cross into Jordan.

A Middle Eastern man jailed for nearly four years must be released by June 8 because the government, which wants to deport him, has taken too long to find a country that will take him, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Court Judge Jerome B. Friedman said in his order issued Friday that the government violated Majed Talat Hajbeh's constitutional rights and that he must be released within 14 days of the order.
