Jordan prime minister quits after four days of anti-austerity protests

Jordan’s Prime Minister, Hani Mulki, has resigned after days of protests against tax rises and austerity measures.

On Monday, he was summoned by king Abdullah who demanded his resignation.

King Abdullah has reportedly asked Omar Al-Razzaz, the Education Minister and a former World Bank economist, to form a new government.

The protests have continued for four consecutive nights and police said dozens of people have been detained and more than forty members of the security forces have been injured.

Mr Mulki had refused to scrap the bill, saying it was up to parliament to decide whether to pass it or not.
