The Great Jordanian Shoe Caper

Jordanian newspapers are reporting a daring case of theft.

Muslim worshippers who went to their prayers in an Amman mosque were surprised upon leaving to find that their shoes had all been stolen.

To add insult to injury, the thief chose to do his caper on the day of a freak snowstorm - forcing the worshippers to walk home, barefoot, in the snow.

The worshippers expressed revulsion at the brazen act.
