“I am talking to you today … to assure you that strife has ceased, and that our Jordan is safe and stable,” the king told Jordanians in a letter released by the Royal Court, praising security forces for protecting the country.

Prince Hamzah denied the allegations in a video later during the day in which he also stated that he was under house arrest.
