Unidentified snipers blamed for Iraqi protester bloodshed, news bureau stormed by masked gunmen

Iraqi authorities have accused unidentified snipers of shooting into crowds of protesters as the death toll from five days of anti-government protests in Baghdad and southern cities nears 100. FRANCE 24’s correspondents in Baghdad sent this report. Hussain Husam was only 18 years old when a sniper shot him dead Friday night, while he took part in the anti-government protests that have rocked Baghdad and southern Iraqi cities this week. In line with Muslim tradition, his neighbourhood accompanies him to celebrate a marriage that will never take place. The coffin bearing his body then arrives at the family home for a final goodbye.
