  • In an isolated stretch of Jordanian desert, a heavily guarded, secret compound houses 1,200 senior police and army officers who defected from nearby Syria.

    In this Monday, Aug. 20, 2012 photo, general view of the Syrian city Tal Shehab, on the Jordanian border of Turra town, in Ramtha, Jordan. In an isolated stretch of Jordanian desert not far from Syria, a heavily guarded, secretive compound houses 1,200 senior police and army officers who defected from the neighboring country. Though their movements are limited, they are protected in an arrangement that underscores Jordan’s growing role as a quiet supporter of Syria’s opposition.
