About a thousand people took to the streets of the Jordanian capital Amman on Friday, to protest against alleged government corruption and to call for Prime Minister Marouf al-Bakhit to step down.
The protest was organised by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the largest and best organised opposition party in Jordan.
Protesters chanted anti-government slogans demanding reform of the ruling regime and the dissolution of parliament.
They were also protesting against the high cost of living.
They have been encouraged by their Arab Spring peers across the region and by revelations of corruption in the government.
