Iraq protesters, police clash again a year after uprising started


Dozens of Iraqi protesters again clashed with security forces in Baghdad today, a day after a rally marked the first anniversary of the start of nationwide mass anti-government demonstrations.

Police fired stun grenades and tear gas at protesters who were burning tyres and hurling rocks on the strategic Al-Jumhuriyah bridge across the Tigris River leading to the highly-fortified Green Zone, an AFP photographer reported.
