I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'jordan's capital?' is the definition.
'dinar' can be an answer for 'capital?' (I have seen 'Iraqi capital' mean 'dinar' so perhaps 'capital' could also mean 'dinar'). I'm unsure of the 'jordan's' bit.

'tore passport up' is the wordplay.
'tore' becomes 'ran' (I've seen this before).
'passport' becomes 'id' (a passport is identification).
'up' says the letters should be written in reverse (in down clue: letters go upwards).
'ranid' backwards is 'DINAR'.

'in' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for dinar that I've seen before include "Monetary unit of several Arab countries" , "N African capital" , "Currency of Algeria, Tunisia, Kuwait etc" , "Unit of currency in former Yugoslavia and other Middle East countries" , "money" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
