[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTU2OTAzXzhDNENFRDRD] Another summary of protests through Saturday A relative calm prevailed throughout Jordan on Saturday, following 72 hours of violent protests against increased fuel prices that led to dozens of injuries and more than 200 arrests across the country. Life largely returned to normal in Amman and the outlying governorates Saturday morning as shopkeepers reopened their stores and authorities scaled back security services’ presence along major roadways and commercial centres. Eyewitnesses reported a security presence in Karak and Tafileh — the only two cities that witnessed large-scale violence Friday night — with military tanks and Gendarmerie Forces stationed around major commercial districts. There were no street demonstrations during the day as opposition groups and grass-root protest coalitions held a series of meetings to decide “the next steps” in their campaign protesting against a government decision to lift fuel subsidies. Activists said they intend to return to the streets Saturday evening, with rallies planned for Karak, Tafileh and Amman. By Saturday afternoon, no location or time had been set for the evening rallies. Saturday’s relative calm comes after four days of violent protests triggered by a government decision to raise fuel prices late Tuesday which, according to authorities, resulted in 100 separate riots that led to over 70 injuries and the death of one citizen. Sporadic clashes between protesters and security personnel were reported across Jordan late Friday. http://jordantimes.com/article/calm-prevails-throughout-jordan-following-fuel-price-riots [/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.
