Jordan unrest: Clashes after fuel protest

Clashes have broken out in Jordan between anti-government protesters and supporters of King Abdullah II.

The skirmishes followed a demonstration by thousands of people in the capital, Amman, over the government's lifting of fuel subsidies earlier this week.

Some protesters chanted for the king's downfall - a very rare occurrence in the country.
