Anti-government protests are continuing in Iraq one day after the Iraqi parliament voted to accept the resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi following two months of protests against corruption, lack of jobs and basic services, and Iranian influence on Iraq. At least 400 people have been killed in the government’s bloody crackdown against the ongoing protests. Iraq has also ordered eight television broadcasters and four radio stations to close for allegedly violating media licensing rules. Last week, security forces raided the Baghdad office of Dijlah TV. We’ll have more on the protests in Iraq after headlines.
