Looters hit opposition offices in north Iraq demos

A Kurdish regional opposition`s offices were targeted by looters, officials said on Friday, after Iraq`s most violent protests since uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia left three dead in two days.



Arbil (Iraq): A Kurdish regional
opposition`s offices were targeted by looters, officials said on Friday, after Iraq`s most violent protests since uprisings in
Egypt and Tunisia left three dead in two days.

Rallies against corruption, poor basic services and high
unemployment in several cities across Iraq have also left more
than 100 people wounded.

The rare demonstrations in the autonomous Kurdish region
were the deadliest since the 2003 US-led invasion that ousted
Saddam Hussein.

Iraqi and Kurdish leaders have pledged to bring the
perpetrators of the violence to justice. They have also
attempted to head off the protests by slashing the salaries of
ministers and MPs and diverting cash earmarked for the
purchase of fighter jets to buy food for the needy.

On today, officials said looters had targeted seven
offices belonging to the Goran opposition party in the
northern Kurdish provinces of Arbil and Dohuk in response to
violent protests a day earlier in the region`s second city of
Sulaimaniyah against the main ruling Kurdistan Democratic
Party (KDP).
