In Jordan, an attempted coup was exposed, in connection with which about 20 people were arrested and placed under house arrest of the former Crown Prince of the kingdom, Hamza bin Hussein, who is suspected of plotting to overthrow King Abdullah II.
This was reported by The Washington Post, citing sources in the Middle East intelligence.
A member of the royal family, Sherif Hassan bin Zayed, and a former adviser to King Abdullah II, former Finance Minister Bassem Awadallah, were also arrested.
The eldest son of the late King Hussein and his fourth wife, Queen Noor Hamza bin Hussein, has been ordered to remain at his palace in Amman while the investigation continues.
The move followed the disclosure of what palace officials called a “complex and far-reaching plot” involving at least one other Jordanian royal court, as well as tribal leaders and security officials in the country.
An intelligence official told the newspaper that additional arrests are expected as the operation continues.
Recall that in February there was a military coup in Myanmar. The military arrested the country’s president, Win Myint, and the head of the ruling National League for Democracy party, Aung San Suu Kyi, who was the country’s de facto leader.
We also reported that the coup attempt was announced by the Haitian authorities-unknown persons allegedly planned an attempt on President Jovenel Moiz.
