One killed, 100 injured as Iraqi security forces clash with protesters

One protester was killed and around 100 others were injured by security forces after hundreds of protesters flooded the streets of Iraq’s capital and southern provinces on Sunday. The protesters are angered by the high-level of corruption in the government and are demanding the removal of the ’corrupt’ ruling elite. They are also demanding an end to foreign interference in Iraqi politics.

*sniffles and wipes tear from eye* Look at them protesting. I don't even care if they are opposing the US in Iraq. The fact that Iraqis are protesting at all gives me hope that all our nation building wasn't for nothing. Maybe Iraq can become a functioning Democracy someday after all. The people have clearly warmed to it. You simply would never have seen this if we had not gotten rid of Saddam Hussein. I am so proud. 😭
