Jordan: First Victim In Protests


A protester was killed and 130 people were hurt on Friday as pro-reform demonstrators and government supporters clashed in the Jordanian capital.

It was the first death since the outbreak of pro-reform protests in Jordan three months ago.


According to AFP, medical source said 130 people, including a policeman, were hurt in the clashes.

Jordanian police used water cannons to break up clashes.

Anti-riot police also broke up a protest camp for the students and detained several of them.

The clashes erupted after some 200 government supporters hurled large stones at more than 2,000 young demonstrators from various movements.
