A number of citizens gathered near the French Embassy in Amman Tuesday to protest the French President Emmanuel Macron’s critique of Islam and the publication of insulting caricatures of Prophet Muhammad. 

Demonstrators called on people to boycott French products to send a message to the French government that Muslims will not stand idly as people insult their religion.

Public Security forces stopped protestors from getting close to the French Embassy's main building.
