'Day Of Rage' In Iraq

Inspired by popular revolts in Tunisia and elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa, organizers urged Iraqis to turn out all over the country on February 25 to protest rampant corruption and a lack of basic services in an event they called "Day of Rage." Deadly clashes were reported between demonstrators and security forces, as many thousands of Iraqis turned out to rebuke the government but not seek to oust it, according to organizers.
