3 Protesters Killed In Baghdad Protests

At least 336 Iraqis killed, around 15,000 injured since protests began on Oct. 1.

At least three protesters were killed and dozens of others injured in clashes between protesters and security forces in central Baghdad on Thursday, according to a medical source.
The source, preferring not to be named for security reasons, said: "Baghdad's hospitals recorded death of three protesters and at least 35 injuries after security forces fired a heavy barrage of tear gas canisters to disperse demonstrators."
"The demonstrators died after they were hit in the head by gas canisters," the source added.
Most of the people with severe cases of suffocation were discharged from hospitals after receiving treatment.
Since early October, Iraq has seen mass popular protests against poor living conditions and corruption. The demands later spiraled into calls for dissolving Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi's government.
According to the Iraq's High Commission for Human Rights, at least 336 Iraqis have been killed and around 15,000 have been injured since the protests began on Oct. 1.
