The security forces reopened all closed roads near the headquarters for the provincial council in the center of the province after the demonstrators withdrew, a security source said on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, riot police arrived at the building to disperse the demonstrators in front of the building's gate who prevented the exit of members of the Council. The demonstrators protested against corruption and demanded jobs and better public services.

No injuries were reported during the dispersal of Friday's protests. Basra protests erupted in July over poor government services but intensified in September before diminishing in recent months.
