Protests in Iraq
Trial leaders in Karbala attended a gathering on Tuesday organized for supporting speech of the Marja given during the last Friday sermon.
During the sermon, the Marja declared support for the demands of the protests, turning down an invitation to meet premier Haider al-Abadi.
According to an official source in the province, dozens of tribal leaders in the province declared support for the demands of the protesters across Iraq.
This comes as the Iraqi provinces, especially the southern ones, have been witnessing mass protests demanding better living conditions. Protesters there took to the streets over power outages, corruption, water shortages and other social and economic disturbances.
