At least 10 Iraqis were killed and 30 more wounded in violence that included clashes during demonstrations in Iraqi Kurdistan.
At least eight Iraqis were killed and 13 more were wounded in the latest attacks. Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch has documented accounts of demonstrator harassment during the ongoing protests in Suleimaniya. In the latest accusation, Kurdish security forces stood idly as masked men attacked protestors. Some witnesses believe the Kurdish government sent the “thugs.” Also, a U.S. spokesman corrected reports stating that U.S. troops had arrested an Iraqi cop and affirmed that Iraqi forces had carried out the arrest instead.
