WIDER MIDDLE-EAST SITUATION UPDATE:

Jordan’s powerful Islamic party said on Monday they have started a dialogue with the state, saying that unlike the situation in Egypt, the opposition in the kingdom does not seek regime change.

Yemen’s opposition turned its focus to the country’s rural areas Monday, organizing demonstrations in southern and central provinces that drew thousands—unusually large gatherings for these mountainous, hard-to-reach areas.

Sudan, Omdurman, just across the Nile from Khartoum, around 1,000 demonstrators shouted slogans against Omar al-Bashir, the president, and hurled rocks at riot  police, who retaliated with tear gas and batons. A student is confirmed to have died of his wounds.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who inherited a regime that has held power for four decades, said he will push for more political reforms in his country, in a sign of how Egypt’s violent revolt is forcing leaders across the region to rethink their approaches

Tunisia, European Union foreign ministers agreed on Monday to freeze the assets of Tunisia’s former President Zine-al Abidine Ben Ali and his wife, an EU official said.

Algerian Interior Minister Dahou Ould Kablia reminded that no march will be permitted by the authorities in Algiers, in an interview Sunday with the French-language daily Liberté. Meanwhile a third Algerian has died from self-immolation on Sunday.
