Protesters carried empty coffins through the streets of Baghdad on Sunday commemorating the victims of the recent government crackdown on demonstrations.
Rallies continued despite parliament’s approval of the resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi.
“Our demand above all is that all these corrupt people in parliament, all the corrupt factions since 2003 until now, quit. We don’t want them anymore,” said one protester at the rally.
Nearly 400 protesters and at least a dozen security officers have been killed in the clashes across Iraq since in the past two months.
