BEIRUT (Reuters) - Jordan denied on Saturday an announcement by Syria that the Nassib border crossing between the two countries had reopened, a government spokeswoman said in a statement.

“Jaber Nassib crossing is still closed. It hasn’t reopened yet for movement of goods and passengers,” the statement quoted government spokeswoman Joumana Ghonaimat as saying.
