Jordan prince ‘under house arrest’ amid security crackdown
Al Jazeera, 04 Apr 2021
The former crown prince of Jordan says he is under house arrest in Amman.
The military has denied detaining Prince Hamzah bin Hussein, but says a former minister, a member of the royal family and others have been detained as part of a continuing investigation.
In a video, Prince Hamzah accused Jordan's leaders of corruption, incompetence and harassment.
Lebanon, Egypt and Gulf countries have all expressed solidarity with Jordan's King Abdullah.
