Counter-Protests Erupt in Irbid, Shops Close Down


[11/17/2012 12:00:00 AM]

AMMONNEWS - Two demonstrations were launched in downtown Irbid, north of Jordan, Saturday evening causing local shops and business to close.

A protest denouncing the government's decision to float fuel prices was held in front of Nuh Al-Qudah Mosque in downtown Irbid, calling on the government to rescind its decision, which caused a major hike in prices of oil derivatives and cooking gas.

A counter "loyalist" demonstration was held nearby, with Gendarmerie forces preventing any clashes between the two demonstrations.
