Iraqi Protesters Burn Headquarters of Pro-Iranian Militia

ERBIL - Iraqi protesters on Saturday evening set fire to the headquarters of a pro-Iranian militia group in the province of Dhi Qar, reports said.

A source told Shafaq News that dozens of demonstrators raided the headquarters of Ansar Allah al-Awfiyaa, a militia group operating under the umbrella of Hashd al-Shaabi, and set it on fire.

The protesters had accused one of the militiamen of bringing a car bomb to Nasiriya to harm the demonstrators.

"The demonstrators burned the headquarter after investigations proved that the car bomb dismantled last week by the security forces and the driver belonged to the movement," the source added.
