— The political upheaval that began in Bahrain and Egypt continues to spread across the Middle East. From Libya to Syria and Yeman — seemingly no country has been spared. Even ever-stable Jordan, a major U.S. ally, has had three months of demonstrations. Protesters and supporters of Jordan's King Abdullah II clashed in the capital of Amman last Thursday, leaving at least 35 injured.
NBC News correspondent Ron Allen is in Amman, Jordan. He reported from Egypt throughout the weeks of upheaval there and the final ousting of longtime President Hosni Mubarak. He answered reader questions about the upheaval across the Middle East and North Africa.
