Jordan: Protests Continue In Amman
An estimated 10,000 protesters have gathered in Amman to call for Jordanian King Abdullah II's ouster, AFP reported Nov. 16. Crowds chanted that the people want the regime to fall, and that the king should reform or leave because he has lost legitimacy. A deputy leader of the opposition Muslim Brotherhood said that the calls for regime change are increasing because the government is ignoring the people's demands. The public calls for Abdullah's resignation mark a dramatic escalation in criticism of the king, who is widely unpopular but until now has rarely been openly criticized.
