AMMAN — Several activists on Monday organised a march to commemorate the third anniversary of the March 24 protest, which was held at the Interior Ministry Circle in 2011 and ended with clashes between security forces, protesters and counter-protesters.

Security forces on Monday closed the vital circle, which connects west and east Amman, to traffic and pedestrians, forcing the activists to change the destination of the rally, which started from Abdali and ended in the Nuzha area.

The tight security measures caused traffic jams across the capital’s main arteries.
