Jordan continues to have low-level demonstrations for government reform but very few calls for a change to the monarchy. Although most demonstrations in Jordan have been peaceful, on March 25 a clash between protesters and pro-government supporters resulted in more than 100 people injured, with one man dying of a heart attack.

There has been little disruption for foreign travelers, and the tourism infrastructure is essentially unaffected. However, hotels and travel companies all report cancellations, and bookings are down.
