Jordan charges 3 opposition activists with 'incitement'
[Al Ahram] A Jordanian court on Sunday charged three members of the main opposition party -- the Moslem Brüderbund's political wing -- with incitement against the government during recent protests, a judicial source said.

in connection with the protests.

The three suspects, charged by the kingdom's state security court with "incitement to oppose the regime," will be kept in jug for 15 days pending three separate cases, the source told AFP.

There are now 107 people awaiting trial in connection with a spate of recent protests sparked by fuel price hikes, including one woman, according to the same source.

Senior party official Ali Abu al-Sukar called for the "immediate release of all prisoners."

"Arrests will not scare Islamist and popular movements," which will continue to demonstrate to "reform the regime," he said in a statement.
