Security forces killed a protester and wounded 91 others in Baghdad Saturday as tens of thousands of Iraqis gathered in mass anti-government protests in the capital and blocked roads leading to a major port.
Reuters Matthew Larotonda has details.
The protests that have swept Iraq for weeks are now the largest to hit that country since the era of Saddam Hussein.
On Saturday, thousands blocked every road leading to the country's main seaport on the Gulf. Daylight demonstrations have been largely peaceful. The violence happens as the sun goes down.
Overnight, security forces used live ammunition. More than 250 people have died since the protests began.
That's Matthew Larotonda of Reuters.

Turkey's Defense Ministry says at least 13 people were killed in a car bombing near a market Saturday in the northern Syrian town of Tal Abyad.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the ministry blamed the attack on the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, the Kurdish component of the Syrian Democratic Forces.
The ministry also called on world leaders to take a stand against the YPG, describing it as a cruel terror organization. Turkey has designated the YPG a terrorist group, but the United States considers it a key ally in the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.
Ankara seized control of Tal Abyad last month after the Turkish military and its allied Syrian militia launched a military incursion into northeastern Syria against the SDF. That followed U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from that region.
