Renewed protests in the Kingdom of Jordan against increase taxes
Hundreds of Jordanians took to the streets of the capital Amman on Sunday, the fourth day of overnight protests on measures supported by the World Bank for rising prices rocked the kingdom, witnesses said.

Witnesses added that public protesters gathered near the cabinet post chanting slogans calling for the removal of Prime Minister Hani al-Mulqi, saying they would only stop protesting if the authorities withdrew draft legislation by increasing the fees they sent to parliament last month. Critics say it will lead to a drop in living standards.

The protesters publicly stated that they would remain in place until the legislation was dropped, while the security services tried to prevent them from approaching the official offices, which were subject to strict procedures.
