Anti-government Demonstrators Gather in Nasiriya

ERBIL - For the second day in a row, dozens of people in Iraq's Nasiriya city took to the streets on Sunday to demand better public services.

The demonstrations were reported in central Nasiriya, in Dhi Qar province, where the protesters were protesting against poor public services, especially electricity supply and roads.

They also burned old tires to block a number of main roads in the city.

On Saturday, similar demonstrations were reported in the district of al-Islah, in Dhi Qar province, where angry protesters demanded the dismissal of the local administration headed by Governor Ahmed al-Rumaid.
