Iraq's riot police open fire at protesters in Najaf

 

Iraqi riot police have opened fire at protesters who attempted to storm the Asa'ib ahl Al Haq Militias in Najaf, well-informed sources said Saturday. 

 

The Iran-allied militia's guards opened fire to disperse the protesters, the sources said. 

A number of Iraqi cities, including Basra, Maysan, Dhi Qar, Babil, Diwaniyah, Wassit and Karbala are witnessing mass demonstrations and sit-ins in protest against the high unemployment rates and lack of services.

Some demonstrators broke into and attacked several local government headquarters in these provinces.
