Anti-corruption protesters storm Baghdad’s Green Zone, enter parliament

5 posts in this topic

Hundreds of supporters of influential Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who have been protesting against corruption, have stormed Baghdad’s Green Zone. The crowds entered the parliamentary building.

A state of emergency has been declared in the Iraqi capital.

To prevent more protesters entering the Green Zone, Iraqi security forces have fired tear gas and shot bullets into the air, Reuters reported citing its sources in the police, as well as al-Sadr's office. Around a dozen people were injured.
