Iraq: Protesters Throng Baghdad


Thousands of Iraqi demonstrators are flowing to Baghdad and other Iraqi cities in what is called “Friday of Dignity” in protest against poor services and boringly sluggish efforts against alleged corruption and fraud in Iraq.

Coming from several Baghdad suburbs, Irate protesters are thronging Al Tahrir Square.


Seemingly geared up for disgruntled demonstrations, unlike last Friday, Iraqi security and military forces are determined to fend off clashes and confrontations with protesters.

They are deploying in the streets leading up to the square.

The protesters call for better services and genuinely serious efforts to wipe out administrative corruption in the country. Baghdad security organs have imposed a curfew for cars and motorcycles in Baghdad as of last night.
