Curfew imposed all over Basra amid sweeping protests

A curfew was imposed all over Basra Governorate amid sweeping protests, well-informed sources said Saturday. 


The wide-spread protests that erupted in Iraq’s southern provinces have left three killed and 65 injured, medical and security 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 during the current period.
