      Jordan Under Fire for Bloody Violence against Journalists

      Violent Jordan police beat up journalists covering a protest and may have inadvertently paved the way for a hot “Arab Spring” summer.

      Authorities detained four policemen, charged with causing severe injuries to reporters covering Friday's Islamic-led protests against the kingdom, which has promised but not yet carried out wide-ranging reforms. Five journalists were hospitalized.
