Jordanian voters head to polls

Polls have opened in Jordan for the first election since mass protests in the wake of the Arab Spring.

For the first time, King Abdullah will consult parliament over the choice of prime minister. There has also been a public crackdown on electoral fraud and election observers have been invited in.

But the reforms are not enough for everyone, with the main opposition group boycotting the vote.

Rami Ruhayem reports from Amman.
