KING RETURNS TO RIOT-TORN JORDAN

King Hussein returned home yesterday to confront the aftermath of rioting over government-imposed price increases. Rioters throughout Jordan expressed support for the King while demanding Prime Minister Zaid Rifai's resignation. No rioting was reported over the weekend following four days of unrest in which at least eight people were killed and 83 injured. But security forces kept up patrols in Salt, Maan, Kerak, Mazar, and other cities where rioters had battled police.
