Calm returns to Iraq after protests
Baghdad: Calm prevailed in Iraq on Wednesday after a week of anti-government protests left dozens dead, prompting the United States to call on the country’s government to exercise “maximum restraint”.
In Baghdad — the second most populous Arab capital — normal life has gradually resumed since Tuesday. Traffic has again clogged the main roads of the sprawling city of nine million inhabitants. Students have returned to schools, whose reopening was disrupted by the violence.
On Tuesday, security restrictions were lifted around Baghdad’s Green Zone, where government offices and embassies are based. (PTI)
