Protestors killed in Iraqi "democracy"

At least 15 protesters have been killed on Friday 25th February during a "Day of Rage" in Iraq. Iraqis across the country, joining their Arab brother and sisters, have organised themselves via social media to protest against corruption, lack of jobs and the lack of basic services in Iraq eight years after the invasion. Like in other Arab countries these protests have not been party political or sectarian. In fact many of the countries leading religious figures advised their followers to not join the protests.
