Jordanians Rally for Government Reforms

VOA News June 10, 2011

Protesters have rallied in cities across Jordan, where some demonstrators called for government reforms while others called for the resignation of Prime Minister Marouf al-Bakhit and his cabinet.

The demonstrators took to the streets after midday prayers on Friday, with some waving signs and anti-government slogans.

The country's state-run Petra news agency said at a rally in the capital, Amman, protesters urged the government to fight corruption, amend the constitution and abolish the State Security Court. Some Jordanians say the special military court protects corruption.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP.
