Jordan king puts half brother under house arrest Updated: 2022-05-20 05:27:48 KST

In Jordan, King Abdullah II has placed his half-brother under house arrest.
Following a strongly worded public letter published on Thursday, the king said he made the move due to Prince Hamzah’s (quote) “erratic behavior and aspirations.”
This means that although Hamzah will be provided with daily necessities, he'll no longer be afforded the same luxuries he once enjoyed.
It marks the latest development in an ongoing palace feud, that saw the prince placed under a form of detention in 2021.
Originally King Abdullah had appointed Hamzah crown prince upon his succession, but later stripped that title, installing his own son as prince instead, in accordance with the country’s constitution .
