Iraqi protesters in Basra block roads with burning items

Iraqi protesters in oil-rich port city of Basra block roads with burning tires and items during a night demonstration aimed to pressure authorities to implement long-awaited reforms.

Anti-government rallies have rocked Iraq since October but had thinned out in recent weeks amid spiraling tensions between Baghdad’s key allies Tehran and Washington.
