Warning against “chaos and vandalism,” King Abdullah II condemned March 29 the unrest in the country’s capital, Amman, after one person died and 120 were wounded in clashes between anti- and pro-government supporters on Friday (March 25). The king also invited the opposition to a national dialogue on reforms, The Associated Press says.
Meantime, a top official said the government has banned its supporters from demonstrating in Amman to avoid a repeat of the violent clash.
“From now on protests by loyalists can only be held outside Amman to avoid clashes with the opposition,” Agence France-Presse quotes the top official who requested anonymity. “The opposition can demonstrate in certain areas in Amman.”
