Animal rights activist advocating vegetarianism in a lettuce gown is briefly held in Jordan
Crowds quickly gathered to gawk at the lettuce lady, but police were not amused.
Officers arrested the Jordanian activist, Amina Tarek, and a colleague from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and held them briefly.
The pair stood in a square along one of Amman's trendiest streets and held a placard reading "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You."
Tarek says she wanted Jordanians "to turn over a new leaf."
Police held them for three hours, saying they had not obtained permission for the protest. The activists say they had approval.
