BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hundreds of Jordanians protested against peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians on Friday, witnesses said.
Around 500 people gathered in Amman holding signs reading "Zionist occupation is a threat to us" and "The dignity of Jordan is the dignity of Palestine."
US Secretary of State was also singled out for criticism, with protesters calling for a halt to his peace initiative.
Demonstrators were prevented from marching to the Hashemite square by security forces, and had to hold a sit-in near the grand Husseini mosque.
