In Iraq, the death toll from ongoing anti-government protests has risen to at least 319 people, with another nearly 15,000 people injured. That’s according to the Iraqi Parliamentary Human Rights Committee, which has been tracking the government’s bloody repression against the protests in Baghdad, Basra, Nasiriyah and other cities. The demonstrations erupted over a month ago over unemployment, corruption and the lack of basic services such as water and electricity.
