Basra demonstrators expelled on Friday members of the Popular Movement's (Hirak) delegation who held a meeting with Ammar al-Hakim, head of the National Wisdom Movement (al-Himka), a source said.

Hundreds of demonstrators in Basra, on Friday, demanded the dismissal of Governor Asaad al-Eidani, and the dissolution of the provincial council.

Hakim met Wednesday with a delegation of the Popular Movement in the province of Basra. Hakim called for meeting the demands of the Basra protestors in a timely manner.

Hakim earlier in December called for involving the Popular Movement in choosing a new governor, according to media reports.
