Democracy Now: Thousands Join “Day of Rage” in Iraq


Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Iraq today in defiance of a government plea to stay home. Demonstrators have turned out for a “day of rage” in a number of cities to denounce corruption and demand better services. Clashes have broken out in the town of Hawija, leaving two dead and more than 20 injured. In other Iraq news, 15 people were killed and 21 wounded when a suicide bomber attacked a religious ceremony in the city of Ramadi.
