Pro-paramilitary demonstrators flood Iraqi protest camp

BAGHDAD (AFP) – Several thousand men backing a paramilitary force close to Iran flooded the Iraqi capital’s main protest camp yesterday, worrying anti-government demonstrators who have denounced Tehran’s role in their country. The men arrived in Tahrir (Liberation) Square in apparently coordinated marches from different parts of the capital, waving sticks, Iraqi flags and the logo of the Hashed al-Shaabi armed network.
