    Thousands of Jordanians have taken part in one of the largest street protests yet against King Abdullah. Crowds of people, including Muslim Brotherhood supporters, were displaying their anger on Friday at the pace of political reform. This peaceful protest is the closest Jordan has come to the Arab Spring. And though the country has mostly been spared calls for revolution, protesters there are demanding change. On Thursday, the King dissolved parliament - an apparent bid to take the sting out of the protests. Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from Amman.
