On Saturday, protests hit the outskirts of the capital Amman that resulted in "armed attacks on security forces", according to local media. The reported attacks come as a lawmaker, Osama al-Ajarma, had been banned from parliament after insulting the legislative body, which ignited calls for protests by members of his tribe.
