Fire and smoke were seen in Najaf on Monday, amid ongoing protests, two days after the entrance to the tomb of Iraqi Shiite Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim was set alight.
Footage shows fire and smoke rising from near the al-Hakim shrine. Footage also shows burnt vehicles and barricades, in addition to people cleaning up a street from debris.
Nearly 400 people have been killed since the... Еще beginning of October in the anti-government protests, including at least a dozen security forces. Iraqi Prime minister Adel Abdul Mahdi announced his resignation on Friday, as protesters demand an end to corruption, better public services and more jobs.
