400 Iraqi Demonstrators Were Killed and 19 Thousand Injured: UN

The United Nations said that the death toll in the Iraqi demonstrations amounted to more than 400 dead, in addition to 19 thousand wounded.

Head of the United Nations Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) Jenin Henness Blachkart, on Tuesday, accused the Iraqi authorities of using excessive force against peaceful demonstrators who went out to demand a better life for their country. She stressed the need for those responsible for killings and abductions against peaceful demonstrators and activists in Iraq to be held accountable, stressing that they documented a large number of these cases.

She also said that thousands took to the streets demanding the authorities of their country to use its full potential for the benefit of all Iraqis. “However, they are paying an unimaginable price for their voices to be heard.”
