UK Ambassador to Baghdad Stephen Hickey has condemned the killing and injury of more Iraqi protesters.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Hickey said “we condemn the killing and wounding of more protesters. No doubt that protesters need to stay peaceful, however, there is no excuse for the excessive use of force that killed more than 600 protesters so far.”

He also expressed the necessity of self restraint, investigations as well as responding to the protesters’ demands of reform.
