Jordan MP receives threat for anti-Assad comment
Jordan MP says he received death threat for his anti-Assad comment
By The Associated Press

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) ' A Jordanian lawmaker says he has received death threats for calling on Syria's President Bashar Assad to step down.

Ali al-Khalayleh says an anonymous caller with a Syrian accent telephoned him Saturday, threatening to "behead" the lawmaker for remarks made about Assad in Jordan's parliament two weeks ago. He says the call came from a Syrian number to his cell phone.

The parliamentarian had called the Syrian regime "corrupt and bloody" in his speech.

He told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he notified security authorities about the threat. Police say they are investigating.

Al-Khalayleh is a member of a local committee to support the Syrian people.
