Jordanian police and onlookers gather at the scene where prominent writer Nahed Hattar was shot dead outside a court in Amman on September 25, 2016A prominent Jordanian writer was shot dead Sunday on the steps of a court where he was facing charges for sharing an anti-Islam cartoon online, in an attack condemned as "heinous".

The assailant -- bearded and dressed in a grey dishdasha worn by conservative Muslim men -- shot Hattar, a 56-year-old Christian, as he made his way up the stairs of the court, a security source told AFP.
