Clashes between protesters and the security forces left about 4 people killed and dozens injured in the Iraqi city of Nasiriyah in Dhi Qar province.

Baghdad and other Iraqi provinces with a Shiite majority witnessed demonstrations since the beginning of last October protesting against the deterioration of service and living conditions, and the spread of unemployment within the community and the spread of financial and administrative corruption in state institutions and departments.

More than 300 protesters were killed and about 15,000 injured during clashes with security forces in different parts of the country.
