Death toll in Najaf rises as Sadr's militias attack protesters


An activist reported an increase in fatalities as a result of a crackdown by Iraqi cleric's miltias, also known as Blue Hats, against protesters, especially in Najaf.


"Death tolls keeps on rising in Iraq due to the cruelty and terrorism of Iranian-backed militias," activist Rand Musawi said.


"We are losing our innocent youth in this revolution against government corruption and its support by armed criminals and militias," she added.
