    Minor clashes broke out in Amman on Friday night between supporters and opposers of King Abdullah II of Jordan.

    Thousands of demonstrators chanted the Arab Spring slogan "the people want the downfall of the regime".

    The country has avoided the unrest that has swept through the region over the past two years, but a decision to raise fuel prices has sparked protests and unrest.
