Clashes broke out in the province of Dhi Qar, southern Iraq, on Sunday, between the security forces and protesters who were angry at the deterioration of services in the province, according to media reports.

The clashes occurred after protesters besieged the municipal council of Dhi Qar's al-Islah, according to the reports.

Videos posted on social media showed angry protesters outside the council's headquarters, where some of them were waving Iraqi flags while others set tires on fire.

The protesters called on the municipal council to fulfill the promises they made concerning the reform of the deteriorating services.

The security forces tried to disperse the protests by firing into the air, before clashes erupted between the two parties, which led to the injury of a policeman, Iraqi media platforms reported.
