Rising fuel prices spark Jordan protests

Help

Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets in Jordan in the latest of a series of protests against the government.

Sparked by rising fuel prices, the demonstrations are being seen as the most serious challenge to King Abdullah in his 13 year reign.

Jordan has been considered an oasis of stability in the middle-east, during a period of turbulence for its neighbours.
