Brutal Baghdad: How Iraqi authorities are complicit in protest deaths
Recent articles in Iraq

The Gulf Centre for Human Rights calls on Iraqi authorities to stop targeting peaceful demonstrators, especially women and children who have been playing a prominent role in anti-government protests.

GCHR says peaceful protesters, civil society activists and human rights defenders in Iraq are increasingly being kidnapped, tortured and assassinated for their participation in ongoing anti-government protests.

The rising death toll suggests security forces are either ignoring orders to stop targeting protesters with live fire, or authorities have lost command of their own forces.
