AP INTERVIEW: Jordanian militant leader says Jordan is not immune to regional chaos

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 8:59 AM EDT
MAAN, Jordan

A Jordanian militant leader linked to al-Qaida says Jordan is not immune to the chaos befalling neighboring countries.

Mohammed al-Shalabi, a senior leader of Jordan's Salafi movement, tells The Associated Press that there is huge anger in the country because of "economic injustice."

He spoke in an interview Friday at his home on the outskirts of the southern city of Maan. The impoverished area has seen protests by supporters of the Islamic State group, an al-Qaida splinter group leading a blitz offensive in Iraq and Syria.

Al-Shalabi, better known as Abu Sayyaf, urged the government to implement Islamic law and more balanced economic policies to avoid a fate similar to Syria and Iraq.

Jordan is one of the closest U.S. allies in the Middle East.
