A protest began Tuesday, where the citizens of Iraq took to the streets to voice out their complaints about corruption and unemployment in the country.
The anti-government protestors tried to appease the public's anger by presenting their new reform plan, where Prime Minister Adel Abdul Madhu revealed his 17-point plans in which included the lease of small scale loans and vocational trainings. He said on the state TV news that his concern for this was to reduce the casualty rate.
So far, a hundred casualties have been recorded, of which includes 18 deaths this week.
Families of the deceased are also set to receive pay-outs this week – something which is usually done for members of the security forces killed during war.
The streets however remains calm this morning, as protesters spent their energies during the course of last night's protest.
