Hundreds of Jordanians burned Israeli and US flags and called for the cancellation of the 1994 peace accord signed between Israel and Jordan in Amman on Friday.

The anti-Israel sentiment surfaced following Friday prayers during a demonstration against the newly sworn in government headed by Prime Minister Fayez al-Tarawneh.

Jordan's King Abdullah swore in a government dominated by conservatives under Tarawneh on Wednesday and tasked it with preparing parliamentary elections expected later this year.
