Cairo (People's Daily)- Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Mulki resigned on Monday after days of unprecedented angry protests against the country's economic policies.

Demonstrations have rocked the capital Amman and several other cities since Wednesday after the government adopted a draft income tax law and announced new price hikes based on recommendations by the International Monetary Fund.
