DUBAI: Dozens of protesters gathered outside the Prime Ministry building in Amman to condemn the death of a Jordanian woman, in what has been described as an honor killing, national daily Jordan Times has reported.
The father of the 40-year-old woman is accused of her premeditated murder. It is claimed the 57-year-old attacked her with a rock near her home in the capital's Ein Basha region.
Jordanians condemned the incident and urged the government to end the violence, demanding better protection for women in the country.
“Women need to be treated equally in Jordan and we should regard any woman who is subjected to violence as a victim that needs support and protection,” a protester said.
