#JORDAN: Attempted Coup Against Abdullah II Foiled

[world politics news]

Jordan said it uncovered a plot to destabilize the kingdom that involved King Abdullah II’s half-brother and extended beyond the country’s borders.

The sibling, former Crown Prince Hamza Bin Hussein, worked in concert with foreign entities, Deputy Prime Minister Ayman Safadi said Sunday, in a first official explanation of a string of arrests a day earlier. 

More than 16 people, including at least one other royal, were taken into custody, he said at a news conference in the capital, Amman.

Jordan has been a staunch ally of the USA, and a stabilizing influence in the region. King Abdullah attended school in the US. He has encouraged stable ties with Israel.
