Jordan security services 'shut Muslim Brotherhood HQ'

Jordanians check the main entrance of the Muslim Brotherhood's office in Amman, which was shut by police on April 13, 2016Jordanian security services on Wednesday closed the Amman headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s main opposition force, which denounced the move as politically motivated. Previously tolerated for decades in Jordan, the Brotherhood has had tense relations with the authorities since the Arab Spring uprisings that shook the region in 2011. “Jordanian security searched the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood and evacuated it before sealing off the entrance with red wax,” said a lawyer for the group, Abdelkader al-Khatib.
