Amman, Jordan - Jordanian Police Move To Break Up Rival Protests
Amman, Jordan - Jordanian police have moved in to separate hundreds of government supporters and pro-reform activists who were holding rival rallies outside the municipal offices in the capital Amman.
No injuries were immediately reported as the police intervened and separated the two groups. About 400 pro-reform Jordanians had turned out on Friday to demand more political say and that the prime minister to step down. A similar number of pro-government supporters held a rally on a grassy patch nearby.
Protests in Jordan turned deadly when riot police broke up a gathering in Amman last Friday after pro-reform activists and government supporters clashed, throwing rocks at each other. One man died and 120 were injured.
Jordan has seen three months of demonstrations inspired by unrests in Tunisia and Egypt .
