[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NDcyNzI5XzZBQ0Y1QzQ4] Washington Post Story... [b]Security forces battled demonstrators armed with torches and in some cases firearms in a number of violent clashes across Jordan on Wednesday, as protests over rising fuel prices entered a second day.[/b] At least 14 people were reported injured and 35 protesters were arrested during two days of scattered melees that included assaults on government buildings and the torching of cars and gas stations.... After a night of rioting across multiple cities, protesters on Wednesday set fire to police kiosks and government facilities in several southern towns as public anger continued to simmer over a government decision to eliminate fuel subsidies. Riot police fired tear gas at 200 protesters in the southern city of Karak after the group attempted to torch the regional governor’s mansion, while public buildings came under attack in the Red Sea port of Aqaba and two other towns, security officials said. In Maan, 150 miles south of the capital, Amman, protesters armed with assault rifles stormed a government building after noon prayers, firing shots and wounding police officers who tried to block them, the officials said... [b]“This was not spontaneous,” said a government security official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal assessments of the protests. “The Muslim Brotherhood had a plan, and they were well-organized. For them, it is a gift from heaven.”[/b] http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/jordan-hit-with-more-protests-work-stoppages-over-fuel-price-hikes/2012/11/14/7adc28ce-2e63-11e2-beb2-4b4cf5087636_story_1.html [/quote]

Protests break out in Jordan, mention king by name
As of this writing, protesters are amassing in Amman, the capital, in a demonstration that was initially sparked by cuts to fuel subsidies but have come to more directly address the country’s governing system, including King Abdullah himself.
Local media report protests in several other Jordanian cities. Demonstrations in the country’s south have “become commonplace over the past year,” George Washington University Professor Marc Lynch said, pointing to this article on “tribal dissent” in the kingdom.
