Hundreds gather in Baghdad in new round of anti-gov’t protests



Hundreds of Iraqis have returned to the streets after weeks of a coronavirus lockdown, demanding sweeping political and economic reforms, just days following the swearing-in of a new government.
Iraqi's Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi promised to set free protesters arrested in demonstrations which started in October 2019.
But the protesters say systemic change is needed.
