Investigations found former Crown Prince Hamzah bin Hussein was linked to a plot to undermine Jordan's security. Under house arrest, Hamzah said he would not abide by orders limiting his communication with the public.
Former Jordanian Crown Prince Hamzah bin Hussein claims to be under house arrest. Jordanian authorities have arrested several people on "security related" grounds.
Hamzah bin Hussein was the favored son of Jordan's late king. He was twice refused the throne by his brother Abdullah II, who took the crown. Now, Prince Hamzah will "place myself in the hands of His Majesty the King."
King Abdullah and the prince visited their grandfather's grave, according to state TV. The visit is a show of unity after Hamzah was implicated in a "plot" to destabilize Jordan.
