Deadly Anti-Government Protests Continue in Iraq

One Iraqi protester was killed and more than 30 others were wounded Sunday amid renewed clashes on a key bridge in Baghdad.

The protesters now have control of three bridges crossing the Tigris River toward the heavily fortified Green Zone, the seat of Iraq’s government.

The protests that began in October over lack of jobs and public services have grown to include widespread corruption and income inequality. Demonstrators are now demanding the complete overhaul of the government.

The protests have spread out of Baghdad into other cities in southern and central Iraq. Demonstrators across the country are blocking roads and disrupting business.
