Three Jordanian police officers were killed in a raid on a suspect’s hideout in Maan, police said.

Monday, police killed a suspect believed to be a fighter. No details were given.

A senior police officer was killed Friday during protests over high fuel prices in Maan, Jordan.

The government promised to take tough measures and redeploy more anti-riot police against violent protesters.

The World Bank says Jordan’s debt is high and unemployment is 23%.

Truck drivers are leading protests to lower fuel prices.

The government has promised to examine truckers’ demands but says it has already spent $700 million to cap fuel prices this year and cannot do much more without violating an IMF deal.

In some of the most widespread civil unrest in recent years, protesters smashed cars, burned tyres, and mounted road blocks.

Over 200 suspects were wanted by authorities in connection with the unrest.

In 2018, Prime Minister Hani Mulki resigned after days of rallies against tax reforms and energy price increases.
