Iraq: 25 protesters killed in Baghdad

WEB DESK

At least 25 protesters were killed and over 130 injured, when unidentified gunmen attacked anti-government demonstrators in Baghdad on Friday night.

The gunfire continued until the early hours of Saturday morning. The assailants first unleashed the deadly assault on Baghdad’s Khilani Square and Sinak Bridge, driving through the areas that are the epicentre of the popular uprising.

The attack was among the deadliest since October 1, when thousands of Iraqis took to the streets calling for sweeping political reforms and the end of Iran’s influence in Iraqi affairs.

Anti-government activists have blamed supporters of Iran-backed Iraqi militias, which have staged similar attacks against protester sit-ins in the capital and the country’s southern cities. Iraqi security forces were deployed to streets leading to the square by the early morning.

Meanwhile, a drone dropped a bomb on the home of Iraqi cleric Moqtada Sadr in the shrine city of Najaf in early morning. His party sources said that the cleric was not in the country. Sadr has backed the anti-government rallies rocking Iraq.
