Report: Israeli Ambassador Returns to Jordan

Israel's ambassador to Jordan, Daniel Nevo, returned to Amman Friday morning, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio.

His return followed a largely-quiet demonstration at the embassy Thursday evening by a crowd estimated at 300, lower than the thousands urged by organizers seeking a closure of the facility. The embassy was evacuated Wednesday evening out of concern that the demonstration would turn violent. The rest of the embassy staff is scheduled to return on Sunday, as the workers generally spend their weekends in Israel.
