The recent killing of a protester fueled renewed anti-government demonstrations in Basra city and around several oil fields, some of which turned deadly. Deadly fighting has broken out between protesters and security forces in Iraq’s oil capital, as demonstrators are again targeting oil fields as a means to pressure the government into addressing long-standing grievances. Rioters lobbed hand grenades at police and set fire to military vehicles Tuesday in downtown Basra, according to a local security official. As many as eight protesters have been killed and dozens of protesters and members of the security forces were injured, according to provincial security and hospital officials.
