Dubai TV reports on the thousands of anti-government protestors demanding reform in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square. Iraqi authorities implemented heavy security measures to prevent the weekly protest from occurring. These measures included imposing a midnight curfew, setting up concrete barriers and barbed wire on major city streets, and deploying a large number of anti-riot police. Despite these efforts, over 5,000 protestors gathered for what is being called the “Friday of Dignity” to honor the dignity of martyrs who were killed in last Friday’s protest.
