Background: An example of co-operation from the Middle East with cadets from Jordan and Arabian (Persian) Gulf countries graduating from the Royal Jordanian Police Academy.
The formality of the early scenes contrasts with the impromptu dancing at the end.
SYNOPSIS: The Coat of Arms of the Heshemite Kingdom of Jordan and flags of countries of the Arabian Gulf on view as the Crown Prince of Jordan, Prince Hassan, inspects cadets who graduated from the Roayal Jordanian Police Academy in Amman on Saturday.
The graduates celebrated the end of their two-year training with dancing to the pipes. More than a hundred Jordanian cadets and 28 from Gulf countries graduated in a happy culmination to this piece of co-operation between Middle Eastern police forces. Ministers and high-ranking police and army officers attended the ceremony.
The dancing was infectious and soon many spectators joined the graduates in the general rejoicing.
