Clashes in Baghdad as protesters try to reach Central Bank building

Clashes erupted in Baghdad after Iraqi security forces launched tear gas to prevent protesters from reaching the Iraqi Central Bank’s building in the centre of the capital. Protesters threw molotov cocktails and stones to security personnel in riot gear, forcing some of them to retreat.

A number of protesters suffered injuries from tear gas. Security forces killed four people as they opened fire and launched tear gas at protesters on a central Baghdad bridge in the same area. At least 330 people have been killed since the start of mass unrest in Baghdad and southern Iraq in early October.
