Iraq protests.

Despite pressure to return to classes, Iraqi students say they will not stop protesting until their demands are met. For two months, protesters have taken to the streets in Baghdad and towns and cities across the mostly Shia south to demand jobs, basic services and an end to corruption. Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has since resigned and now leads a caretaker government with limited powers. Humanitarian organisations have meanwhile expressed concerns about the use of violence and loss of life during the on-going protests.
