Protesters in Baghdad were seen singing, dancing and playing football among clashes and unrest during recent protests on Wednesday.
Footage shows children and adults dancing to local music and others were seen playing football on the streets of the city. Some were seen playing a ‘trust game’ amongst each other wherein a blindfolded protester was thrown in the air and caught by a bedsheet held by fellow protesters.
The country has been gripped by anti-government protests since October, when demonstrators hit the streets, denouncing high levels of unemployment, widespread corruption and a lack of basic services. Two protesters were reportedly shot dead during clashes between demonstrators and security services on Wednesday.
