[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTU2ODcxXzJDQzE3MDkw] Summary of Protests though Friday... According to the government's own figures, there were 91 protests and/or riots across the country during the first three days of disturbances last week: 15 in Amman, 29 in the northern governorates, 20 in the south and 27 in the central region. By Friday, a total of 280 people had been arrested and detained, though some of them had also been released. There was probably an element of wishful thinking in the Jordan Times's claim of a return to normality on Saturday. Early on Saturday a municipality building in Kerak governorate was set alight; during the daytime (as the Jordan Times acknowledges) opposition groups were meeting to plan their next moves and, once evening prayers were over, demonstrators were back on the streets in several parts of Amman. Today, student strikes are due to start at several universities: Yarmouk University in Irbid, the University of Jordan in Amman and the Tafileh Technical University. Zarqa University and Al-Hussein University in Ma'an were both insisting that classes would go ahead and urging students not to join the strike. http://www.al-bab.com/blog/2012/blog1211.htm#gunfire_as_jordan_protests_continue [/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.
