Demonstrations Continue at Embassy in Jordan

Hundreds of people demonstrated, Friday, outside the Israeli embassy in Jordan, following this week's shooting death of Raed Az-Zeiter of Samaria, who was a judge in the Jordanian court system, after he tried to take an Israeli soldier's weapon at the Allenby Bridge Crossing.

Jordanian media reported that the demonstrators were calling for expelling Israel's ambassador and freeing the mentally unstable Jordanian soldier who was convicted for opened fire on group of Israeli schoolgirls on March 13, 1977 at Naharayim, just south of the Kinneret/Sea of Galilee. The soldier was given a life sentence.
