Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Sunday accused the country’s former crown prince of conspiring with foreign elements in a “malicious plot” that threatened national security, adding that the plot had been foiled at the “zero hour.”
“Then it was clear they moved from design and planning into action,” Safadi said. He said some 14-16 people are under arrest, in addition to two senior officials close to Prince Hamzah.
Safadi spoke a day after Hamzah, a half brother of King Abdullah II, was placed under house arrest, in a rare public clash between top members of the long-ruling family.
