Anti-government protesters defy Baghdad curfew

As thousands of demonstrators defied a curfew in Baghdad on Thursday, Iraqi security forces opened fire and exchanged fire with gunmen in southern cities, bringing the death toll from three days of anti-government protests to at least 27. Two officers and two protesters were killed late on Thursday in the city of Diwaniya some 160 kms south of Baghdad, according to police.
