Jordan's Prime Minister Maruf al-Bakhit blamed the Islamist opposition on Friday (March 25th) for fomenting violent protests, The Jordan Times reported.
The Muslim Brotherhood is taking orders from other Islamists in Syria and Egypt to create chaos in Jordan, al-Bakhit told state television.
Al-Bakhit ordered the Muslim Brotherhood to "stop playing with fire", adding, "we still continue every day to respect freedom of expression that does not harm others."
On Friday, one protester died and several were injured during clashes between demonstrators and security forces. A medical source told AFP that the man died from blows to the chest. Officials said the man, Khairi Saad Jamil, 57, died of a heart attack.
Fifteen members of the recently formed National Dialogue committee announced they were resigning to protest what they called the government's violent response to the demonstrations.
