AMMAN — Police forces on Saturday said calm was restored to the Hashemiyeh District, 10km east of Zarqa, after local residents rioted and blocked roads with burning tyres over 10-year-old Abdullah Momani, who went missing recently.
In a statement, the police said they searched the whole area for the missing child, but could not find him.
Momani’s family insist that their son, who was last seen three days ago in the company of a friend on the way to a local store, has been kidnapped.
Police on Monday said a 10-year-old boy, who went missing in Zarqa last week, was found dead in a cesspool late Sunday night and there were no indications of foul play.
Two children are currently receiving treatment at Prince Hashem Military Hospital and Hikmah Private Hospital in Zarqa Governorate after they were allegedly injected with unknown substances by two strangers, while police said they are looking into the case.
Police on Sunday said calm had been restored in Karak’s Qasr District following “minor” riots that took place after Friday prayers.
