Hundreds of people flooded the streets of Basra on Friday as protests over poor economic growth and social services continued in the oil-rich city. Protesters held banners, waved Iraqi flags and chanted slogans, demanding action to be taken to remedy the situation. “We gave them 10 days as a deadline and no one seems to care. The Prime Minister did not apply anything from our demands to our... Еще city of Basra, that’s why we’re here to sit in,” said Hussein al-Basrawi, one of the demonstrators. Unrest over the prevailing economic situation has swept the southern part of Iraq over the past three weeks.
