Iraq: Anti-government protesters denounce pro-Iran crowds

Anti-government rallies continued in Iraq’s capital in the aftermath of a separate day-long protest outside the United States embassy.

Protesters have for months occupied Baghdad’s iconic Tahrir Square, just across the Tigris River from the Green Zone, home to government offices, the United Nations headquarters and foreign embassies.

The youth-led demonstrations have rocked Iraq since early October, demanding the removal of a governing class seen as corrupt, inept and beholden to Iran.
