BAGHDAD (AA) - At least 104 people were killed and 6,107 injured in anti-government protests in Iraq since Oct. 1, the country's Interior Ministry said on Sunday.
The demonstrations in Baghdad and southern provinces against high unemployment and rampant corruption started on Oct. 1.
Protesters have been demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi as well as improvements in living conditions and an end to corruption.
Discontent has been growing in Iraq in recent years due to rising unemployment and rampant corruption. Many in the country have limited access to basic services such as electricity and clean water, and unemployment is around 10%.
