Hundreds of Jordanians took to the streets of the capital of Amman in a fourth day of nightly protests against IMF-backed price increases that have shaken the kingdom, witnesses said.

They said demonstrators who converged near the cabinet office chanted slogans calling for the sacking of Prime Minister Hani Mulki and saying they would disband only if the government rescinded a tax bill it sent to parliament last month which critics say worsens living standards.
