Celebrations in Jordan over resignation of interior minister

The mayor of the tense Jordanian tribal city of Maan says hundreds of residents took to the street to celebrate the resignation of the country’s interior minister over what they consider heavy-handed tactics by the security forces. Mayor Ali Khattab said Monday that celebrations erupted after Hussein Majali resigned on Sunday, apparently as part of a high-level shakeup. State media said the head of the public security department and the gendarmerie were sent into retirement.
