Continued conflicts between the federal government and the opposition: Extra injured
Clashes in Baghdad between Iraqi security forces and supporters of parties disputing the results of the October parliamentary elections injured 30 people today, police sources and health workers said.
It was the first major violent conflict between government forces and supporters of political parties, who lost dozens of seats after the October 10 elections, Reuters reported.
Police used tear gas and fired the wark ammunition while many protesters threw stones and tried to reach the Green Zone in Baghdad, where the government buildings and foreign embassies have been said.
21 protesters were injured in the clashes, mostly from inhaling tear gas, while nine more police officers were injured from being hit by oysters, hospital sources said.
