Iraq: Thousands protest in Baghdad after Mohammed Allawi named PM

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of central Baghdad on Sunday, after Iraqi President Barham Salih named former communications minister Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi as the country's new prime minister. Footage filmed near Tahrir Square shows demonstrators with a huge Iraqi flag and placards denouncing the new prime minister and showing no sign of backing down from their demands, which... Еще include among others a politically independent prime minister. Iraq has been in the grip of unrest over government corruption, high unemployment and external influence in Iraqi politics since October 2019. Amid massive anti-government protesters, Allawi's predecessor Adel Abdul Mahdi resigned from his post on December 1.
