The resignation of the Transjordanian Prime Minister is being strongly demanded by the Arab press in connection with the disastrous attack of the Wahabis on Amman, the capital of Tranjordania. It became known today that 21 inhabitants of Amman were killed and 25 others were wounded during the attack of the Wahabis which was repeated only with the aid of English aeroplanes. The loss of the Wahabis was still greater. The railway between Amman and Mann was cut off. The center of the attack was the house of MiskalPasha, the chief of the Tribe Bene Sacher.
