BAGHDAD, Iraq (AA) - Internet access was restored on Monday throughout Iraq after a days-long interruption in the wake of anti-government protests.

The block on social media networks Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp was also removed.

The government has not yet commented on the issue.

Mass protests broke out last week across several Iraqi cities with demands of improving living conditions and ending government corruption.

Police action against the protests has resulted in hundreds of deaths, according to an Iraqi medical source.
