Jordanians protest against military intervention in Syria

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Members of Jordan's communist party gathered in front of the U.S embassy in Amman on Sunday to indicate their strong opposition to any military intervention in Syria. The demonstrators chanted slogans against the United States and against the military intervention. U.S. President Barack Obama on Saturday backed away from an imminent military strike against Syria to seek instead the approval of the U.S. Congress, in a decision that likely delays U.S. action for at least 10 days. Obama, in a stern statement from the White House Rose Garden, said he had authorized the use of military force to punish Syria for a chemical weapons attack on August 21 that U.S. officials say killed 1,429 people. Military assets to carry out a strike are in place and ready to move on his order, he said. The U.S. Congress is in recess and not scheduled to return to work until September 9. It is unclear which way any vote would go.
