Anti-government protests have spread across Iraq in recent weeks, resulting in a deadly clash between government forces and residents of Fallujah.

When the clashes ended, seven young men were dead, igniting more anger and defiance among the province's Sunni population.   

In Al-Anbar Province and the city of Fallujah, people say they have been protesting because they are so unhappy with the government of Nouri al-Maliki.
