Civil unrest in Jordan

A violent confrontation between Islamist groups in Jordan resulted in at least 20 people being injured. However, some reports suggest that 83 police officers were also injured.

In addition, approximately 2,000 protesters demonstrated for political reform in Amman. The pro-reform protesters are demonstrating for a series of changes to decrease the monarch's control of the government.

Travellers should be aware that the situation in Jordan may be unpredictable and demonstrations may become violent at any time.
