Iraqi security forces shot at anti-government protesters in Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least two person, and unidentified men set fire to sit-in tents in a southern Iraqi city, police and medics said, as months-long civil unrest escalated.
Anti-government protests erupted in Baghdad on Oct. 1 and quickly turned violent. Security forces and unidentified gunmen have shot protesters dead.
Demonstrators are demanding that all parties and politicians be removed, free and fair elections be held and corruption rooted out.
At least 75 of those hurt were in the southern city of Nassariya.
