Jordanian attempts to commit suicide in parliament

July 21, 2018

Jordanian security on Thursday rescued a man who tried to throw himself off the balcony in the parliament building.

The man shouted: “I am seeking help from you,” before trying to jump while parliament were in session to approve the new government.

Parliament Speaker Atef Tarawneh asked security to take the man to his office in order for him to listen to his complaint after the parliament session ended.

However, Jordan’s newly appointed Prime Minister Omar Al-Razzaz hugged the man and went out of the parliament chamber with him.

During the session, parliament approved Al-Razzaz’s government with overwhelming majority.
