Protest concerns lead to evacuation of embassy in Jordan

Israel evacuated its embassy in Jordan Wednesday evening, hours before a Facebook organized march under the banner of "No Zionist embassy on Jordanian territory."
The decision came just days after the 13-hour rampage at the Israeli embassy in Cairo, during which six security guards locked themselves behind a steel door while mobs ransacked the embassy.Unlike in Egypt, where diplomats lived with their families, in Amman the Israeli delegation serves without their families, and comes home for weekends.
