Overwhelmed by a dramatic wave of refugees fleeing Kuwait, Jordan suddenly closed its borders to them Wednesday night, even as help was reported on the way in the form of a European-sponsored airlift for stranded Egyptians. The closure came as King Hussein, the Jordanian leader, announced that 42,000 refugees, most of them Egyptian migrant workers, had entered Jordan by way of Iraq and Saudi Arabia on Wednesday alone. About 185,000 people have arrived since the invasion of Kuwait on Aug.
