  • Iraqi protesters break through barricade on bridge to Green Zone
Sharjah24 – Reuters: Iraqi protesters occupied part of a main bridge in Baghdad on Saturday (November 16) that security forces had pushed them away from a week before.
Demonstrators also occupied a tall building overlooking the bridge, taking new ground in the centre of the Iraqi capital after protests had appeared to lose momentum.

More than 300 people have been killed during weeks of mass unrest in Baghdad and southern Iraq.
