Twelve-year-old child Abdulaziz Alsaifi was arrested by Jordanian police Monday morning. The child was arrested after videos of him addressing crowds in Amman mosques and calling for the freedom of Palestine appeared on YouTube.

Queen Rania of Jordan is said to have intervened personally to have the boy released immediately according to the child's mother. The child was released by authorities and is now at home with his family. It is expected there will be no further action carried out against the child by the police
