Protests in Iraq continued Saturday – despite more than 40 deaths the previous day. Shortly before a special session of parliament, hundreds of people took to the streets in the capital Baghdad to demand reforms, a new government and an end to corruption. Activists also called for further protests in the Shiite-dominated south of the country, where 42 people were killed on Friday, despite curfews.
