Jordan's Information Minister Taher Adwan says he has resigned because of laws he deemed "restrictive for freedom of expression".

"I submitted my resignation today to Prime Minister Maaruf Bakhit in protest at a government decision" to debate new press and publication laws in parliament that he opposed, Adwan said.

"In addition, MPs will debate proposed anti-corruption and penal laws. I consider these laws restrictive for freedom of expression."
