Fourth Circle area protests come to halt

AMMAN — After seven days of protests against economic policies and social injustice, protests near the Prime Ministry, located at the Fourth Circle area in Amman, came to a halt. 

A Jordan Times reporter on the site said that the area was almost empty, except for dozens of young people who were celebrating what they deemed an achievement, and traffic was flowing smoothly. 

A security source confirmed in a statement the end of the protests led by young people, which have continued peacefully except for some frictions that caused injuries among security personnel. 

The civil action came one day after the professional associations staged a general strike and a rally in protest mainly against the income tax draft law, which Prime Minister-designate Omar Razzaz on Thursday promised to withdraw from the Lower House.
